B Bar Z Llama Ranch
In 1996 Wayne Brokaw and Rita Zorrozua through the encouragement of friends Norbert and Mary Smith, Hillside Llamas (Newberg Or) obtained their first llamas. Since Wayne has shown cows, and Rita dogs they were drawn to the activity of competing in llama shows. Initially they participated in halter classes. But soon noticed the fun that was part of the performance classes. Over the years they have attended the shows in the Northwest and also the ALSA Nationals and the Celebrity Show. Their herd includes Suri, silky, and heavy wooled animals. The B Bar Z Ranch philosophy is the belief that llamas can be a part of an individuals wellness program in terms of maintaining a balance of life through the utilization of llamas as a medium for emotional wellbeing. With that belief, the ranch has become a vehicle for Animal Centered Therapy for adults and youth.
