Leonardo (Lucca's Leonardo of Island Alpaca)


Leonardo what an absolutely stunning male! 


We entered Leonardo’s juvenile fleece in the 2017 Big E Alpaca Fleece Show and we were very happy with the results. Leonardo won First Place, Best Crimp, Best Brightness AND Judge’s Choice! We couldn’t be more proud!

This young male a solid representation of his sire, our very own Estrada's Lucca of Island Alpaca, who has won two Champions and 13 First Place Ribbons. Lucca's sire, 

CT Estrada, is an 8x Champion who has won over 30 First Place Ribbons! Lucca's grandsires are the very famous Snowmass Legacy Gold and Snowmass Royal Rose. 

Leonardo's dam, Lunette of Island Alpaca has won two Champions herself and four First Place Ribbons. Her dam, Island Alpaca Luna has been awarded a First Place Ribbon. Lunette's sire, Magic's Talon, has won a Champion and eight First Place Ribbons.

Leonardo's fleece is coming in very nicely, high frequency crimp and very fine. His personalilty is fantasitc, very patient and sweet just like his dam and sire. We look forward to watching him grow and we are excited to show him in the future!

Color: Medium Brown  

Lunette is a marvel! Fine lustrous crimp that is very dense and bright. She takes after he dam, with
blue ribbons in hand and a color champion!

Lunette, showed and placed at the Big E Alpaca Show. With seven alpaca in her class, she took a first place, blue-ribbon win, and color champion for browns competing along side, over 20 alpaca in total. Even more impressive, once again Lunette, was awarded the blue in the "Bred and Owned" class a most competitive class of fifteen alpaca with many white blue-ribbon winners competing. Very impressive for a brown!

Lunette is a very sweet girl who is extremely easy to handle. Fantastic on a halter and very easy to work with.

Lunette's first cria Larissa is just as beautiful as her and Lunette's amazing fleece qualities have been passed down to her gorgeous brown daughter. Larissa has amazing tight and bold crimped fleece that is very dense but also really fine.

We are really looking forward to seeing how her future cria turn out to be!
