Paloma (Paloma of Island Alpaca)

Paloma, what a lovely young female! Her conformation is beautiful, with nice straight legs, a solid frame with a lovely white face. Her fleece shows a lovely bold crimp that is fine and shows great density.

Paloma's dam, Purl, is a wonderful light sliver grey first place winner with very dense, but fine fleece. Purl's sire is Magic's Talon, a light silver grey alpaca that has won a champion and several first place ribbons! Purl carries the genetics of Hemingway, Snowmass Legacy Gold and Augusto from her dam's side.

Paloma's sire, CT Estrada, is a beautiful fawn alpaca that has an outstanding phenotype with a strong frame with very dense, fine fleece. Estrada, is an 8x champion who has won over 30 first place ribbons.

Dam:

Purl of Island Alpaca

ARI#: 31645980

Heritage: Peruvian/Chilean/Austrailian/New Zealand

Color: Light Silver Grey

Purl won the blue for the National Champions' Alpaca Fleece Show and the VAOBA Alpaca Expo Spin-Off in 2013! Purl also won the blue at the Big E in 2010! 

Purl is one to watch! A beautiful grey Purl is with her tremendously fine, bright fleece and quality conformation, we look forward to watching her grow! 

With the strong background of her dam Margeaux's genetics, in addition to her sire Magic's Talon's substantial bone and excellent conformation we can only predict that she will be one fabulous alpaca.

Her sire is a proud, erect male with just beautiful lines to him, a trait that we can already see in Purl. Talon is the picture perfect grey with a spot-free blanket, and Purl, a tuxedo patterned grey, is almost spot free.

Judge commented on her fleece from Alpacapalooza 2013: "Minimal amount of fleece lost in production. Nice brightness!"


Sire:

CT Estrada

ARI#: 30522619

Heritage: Full Peruvian

Color: Medium Fawn

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!!

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, 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.

Estrada is settling females. Traditional farm breedings with confirmed pregnancy, stud fee: $2,500. Mobile breedings: $2,000. Drive-by breedings: $1,500.  Please compare this champ to other herd-sires with similar show records. You will find him to be a terrific value!
