Kiwi (Estrada's Kiwi of Island Alpaca)

Kiwi won First Place at the Sunshine State Alpaca Expo Spin-Off in 2015 and the Gold Country Gathering Alpaca Spin-Off in 2014!

"Nice brightness" according to the 2017 MAPACA Jubilee Spin-Off judge!

Kiwi is a very beautiful and stunning young bay black female with a strong disposition.

Kiwi's fleece is very fine, dense, uniform, and bright. She's also got a wonderful staple length. Her phenotype is fantastic! She's thick-boned, has great conformation, and she's got an absolutely gorgeous face.

Her sire is CT Estrada who has won multiple champions and blues.

Dam:

Skyeview Kristina

 

ARI#: 842365

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean 

Color: Medium Brown

Kristina is a lovely proven nurturing mother. She has six beautiful babies on the ground. We are so fortunate to have event free births with Kristina. All goes very smoothly and she is a very caring gentle mom. For a first time breeder Kristina will be a real treasure.

She had lovely Margeaux in 2006, a medium fawn female, when bred to white (Skyeview's Michelangelo). In 2007 she had a wonderful white male this time, Michelangelo's David, when bred to the same white service sire, Michelangelo. 2008 brought us a medium brown female, Captain Jacks, Jackie O' when bred to fawn.

Her 2010 cria, equally impressive results: Estrada's Katarina, with a micron in the 17's. 

Terrific diversity in color!


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!!

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.
