Bella is an outstanding young bay-black animal. Her sire the notable Andean bronze and her dam Nova's Twilight has gifted her her upright stance and undeniable presence.
Andean Bronze is that exceptional dark colored alpaca whose fiber is like velvet. With a four year histogram of 20.5, 4.0, 19.6, 2.0, he has fiber stats that surpass the vast majority of his light colored brethren. He has shown the ability to consistently pass those attributes onto his offspring, such as Bella, who have been a dominant force on the show circuit for a while now. The premier brown Herd Sire of the North American Alpaca Stud with very good reason.
Bella will be a terrific addition to any herd!

Annie has been bred to CT Estrada for a summer 2010 cria. We look forward to seeing what this pairing can do.
We are very excited to have Estrada in our herd and our breeding program. Estrada has very dense, fine fleece, with a high-frequency crimp all over, great coverage and conformation. Most recently 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!". The latest news...Estradas fleece (its fourth showing) took yet another blue at PAOBA show, May, 2009.
To date, Estrada has 9x Champ/Reserve Championships, and 24 first-place, blue-ribbon awards. See the details of his show record below most in very competitive classes!
Twilight is a presence on the pasture very big-boned and statuesque.
Her lineage leaves little to be desired Sired by Snowmass Nova and Shadz of Midnight.
She is a very young and attentive mother a terrific milker having given us two beautiful, healthy female cria, without event. Both were over 18 pounds at birth with positive IgG level. Afteil, and Island Alpaca Bella Notte.
Her maternal half-sister Snowmass Midnight's Gold had a cria that was the highest selling maiden female in the world, for its time just a few years ago.
Twilight has been bred to one of our finest herd sires, Pietro, ( now with 2 fabulous cria on the ground) for a July 2008 cria. We are excited to see the result of this pairing.
