Mustang Sally

 

Sally is an amazing young female and one of the most attentive moms on the farm.

Along with a very pleasing but shy personality she has very soft fine dense fiber terrific coverage and a beautiful face. Her sire, Alacante, son Pperuvian Camilio, is a multiple blue ribbon winner, and has been quoted as having fleece like a rug.

In 2005 Sally has blessed us with Island Alpaca Pietro, a male, with incredible fineness; he was 18.5 Micron at 1-1/2 years old and just at 21.5 at nearly 3 years of age! With incredible luster and very high frequency crimp Pietro is abundantly covered with this fine fiber from his top-knot to his toes. He adds tremendous fineness to his offspring, as did Mustang Sally with him! 

Sally gave us Apollo's Victory, whose sire was the Royal Peruvian Eros, who again, has been proven to be, yet another fine, lustrous gentleman.

Sire:

Chase Tavern Estrada

 

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 2010 shearing, Estrada had over 10 pounds of fleece, which is an incredible 6+% of his overall body weight!

We are very excited to have Estrada in our breeding program. 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, recently, 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 multiple Champ/Reserve Championships, and over twenty 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. 

Estrada is settling females. Traditional farm breedings with confirmed pregnancy, stud fee: $2,500, $2,000, mobile*, and $1,500 for drive-by breeding.  

Please compare this champ to other herd-sires with similar show records. You will find him to be a terrific value!
