GREAT BUYS for 2020!

We still have some wonderful award winning males and females with outstanding bloodlines!
With contract and deposit, we will offer 30 days free boarding and assist you in any way we can to make our beloved "kiddos" yours.

IT'S BEEN A GREAT RIDE, BUT IT'S TIME TO MOVE INTO FULL TIME RETIREMENT. Great pricing on packages of 5, 10, or the entire remaining herd!
Even the ranch will soon be on the market: 40 acres in Elbert County, Colorado.

We are ready to work with you and your budget to fulfill your wants and needs!
You can even work for credit against your purchase. WE NEED GOOD HELP ON THE RANCH!
When you purchase from us, you will also have our unending support.

ATTENTION HANDSPINNERS AND FIBER ARTISTS!!! Great deals on RAW FIBER & ROVINGS! Wide range of colors, including many silver and rose greys, now available. Too many to list so Contact me with your color preferences.

Farm Terms & Financing

Financing is available to qualified buyers for sales over $1000. With a minimum of 30% down, we will work together on a payment plan over a period of 12-36 months. Time of possession is determined on a case by case basis and transportation is at the expense of the buyer. We can deliver within 150 miles for a small fee.


We are John & Coral Dillon and we are delighted to have you visiting our website! Retired from the corporate world, we moved from the Roaring Fork Valley to the Bijou Basin of Eastern Colorado to raise alpacas and enjoy country living. Alpacas de La Mancha was founded in 2007 with the purchase of one pregnant female and so it began!
We are very proud of what we have accomplished with our breeding program. We love the lifestyle but now age and medical issues are saying it's time to sell, move closer to town and retire again!
