Layla is a curious girl who's fleece is very unique. She has fleece that is very fine that has a tight crimp. Her fleece is bright and nicely dense and uniform. She has a great phenotype with a strong frame, a beautiful top-knot and face.
Layla's sire is CT Estrada who has won multiple champions and blues.
She is the granddaughter of the well-known 4Peruvian Altiplano Gold!
Judge commented for the Southern Select Alpaca Spin Off 2013: "Nice hand. Good staple definition. With spinning there was good control and it drafted smoothly!"

Luna has beautifully dense fleece well-defined staple and a charming
discernible white-striped top-knot. This gorgeous gal is a beautifully
superlative manifestation of all that one would want in a female alpaca.
A blue ribbon winner at her first show she elicited the following judges comments; "a
beautifully constructed female with great density for such a young
animal"..."her fiber has exceptional crimp and is consistent from tail
bone to head"..."the fiber is also soft and dense with a luster that
jumps out at you"..."her walk is elegant and her posture is very strong
and consistent with high value alpacas": clearly, Luna has it all, and
with a mellow, motherly disposition to boot!
She possesses all of
the fiber attributes one would expect from her famous sire, 4Peruvian
Altiplano, a well recognized champion who has produced an amazing number
of show winners, and whose offspring are highly sought after. His
reputation for consistently producing high quality offspring is
unmatched by most males. He has an amazing ability to pass on positive
traits in fleece and conformation with over 90% of his offspring (or
those with his lineage) placing first and second in tough local and
national competitions. His cria have shown instant improvement over
their dams. Even dams of the highest quality have crias that are a step
up with Altiplano Gold as their mate. All the right positives to the
right degree to produce the complete quality offspring. In density,
coverage, architecture, and crimp, fleeces are taken to the next level.
Body types are improved with heavier bone and greater "type" in style.
Luna's first cria is a lovely locked, dense female, the lovely Lunette, a medium brown alpaca who was awarded a Champion and several blues.
Luna has proven to be an excellent mother, always pausing for her cria, incredibly attentive!
Estrada is a well-balanced male from two top parents. His Sire, Evander does it again with this amazingly dense, fine fleece male with a great
handle and luster, extensive coverage and a great body. With his 2012
shearing, Estrada had over 12.6 pounds of fleece sheared off. Amazing!!
Alpaca judge, Wade Gease has said about Estrada, "He is the "complete package". Very nice fleece style and crimp formation throughout. He has kept his fineness/softness." Also, Judge David Barboza has said about Estrada: "His architecture and density is incredible! Spot on!" And Alpaca Fleece Judge, Cheryl Gehly has written: "Wow! Fine with great character! Quite uniform for micron.""Beautiful Fleece: fine, bright, well organized!". Awarding him first place in the competition, and again, after the fleeces third showing at
the 2009 Empire Symposium and Fleece Event, she commented again;"Beautiful Fleece: fine, bright, well organized!". Most recent fleece circuit, Estrada's fleece (its fourth showing) took yet another blue at PAOBA show, May, 2009.
To date, Estrada has eight multiple Champ/Reserve Championships, and 27 first-place, blue-ribbon awards. See the details of his show record below, most in very competitive classes!
In 2009, Estrada's Fleece won the reserve Championship, and took first place in his class over another amazing alpaca who won the 2008 Futurity Championship that had 54 entries in the class!
Both dam and sire have produced Championship winners so his future is extremely promising indeed.
