Golden Frida is sired by the most decorated Snowmass Legacy Gold who sold for $500,000 at the Making of Champions Private Selection Sale in 2006. His half brother Snowmass Invincible sold for a world record price of $580,000 in 2005. These are the two highest selling males in alpaca auction history. His Grand sire, 4P Legacy also sold for $750,000 for 1/2 interest which is the highest selling private treaty sale* -- Please read about him below.
We are thrilled to have this magnificent female as part of our herd, at Island Alpaca.
In 2008 she has produced her first offspring, and has been a terrific mom. This pairing was with A.L.Paca's Simba which resulted in a superfine male, (16.7 micron) we now name, Khan d'Or, or Golden Khan. ( he is often refered to as "Golden Boy" here at the farm, as he is truly solid gold!
With Frida's fabulous lineage and a terrific service sire, CT Estrada, you MUST see Frida's May 15, 2010 cria. He is a brilliant male! This incredible offspring, with tight, crimpy curls, is named Lucca and is a blue ribbon winner!
Frida's Grand Sire, is again, the notable 4Peruvian Legacy 6016, born on the Accoyo Estancia in 1994 and imported ito the USA in the fourth Peruvian Importation in 1996. Legacy left and indelible mark on the North American Alpaca Industry. he was perhaps one of, if not the most notable alpaca in the world by virtue of both his production of excellence and his record-setting sales numbers. Twice he was the highest selling alpaca in history and he still holds that distinction. At the Futurity, he was the Herd Sire of the year in 2002 and the Reserve Light Herd Sire of the Year in both 2005 and 2007. It is conceivable, if not probable, that he would have won that award a couple more times in the late 1990's had such an award been established. his sons and daughters, and grandchildren have garnered countless ribbons and Championships during a span which covered a decade all over the nation. He became important to many programs by virtue of his sons and daughters.
Currently Frida is due for a July 04, 2012 cria, sired by Estrada (CT Estrada)!
We at Island Alpaca Co. are very proud and to have his genetics in our herd!

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!".
