Results are in: Empire Fleece Event 2011: Estrada, our well decorated herd sire, manages a Championshipin his color class of 36 alpaca in total, with all but 4 competing alpaca, younger than him.. That is lot said for the fleece of an alpaca at 3-12 years of age... at the Alpaca Festival of Oregon, 2010 takes another Championship (Reserve Fleece) out of 22 entries, competing again, with alpacas half his age! Another show, the first annual STAR Spin Off, 2010 in Texas, a blue ribbon, and the highest scoring fleece in his color group:1 out of 29. And again, he also won two additional blues, this year, not only in his age group, of mature males, but took the big win in the entire color class of all ages, at the2010 TxOLAN Alpaca Spectacular, Spin-Off competition. He was judged the best of fifteen other alpaca, even the youngest of animals! Up against some stiff competition! Finally, another A+ blue at the 2010 CABA Classic Spin-Off, Estrada's fleece scored a brilliant 92 out of 100!
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 2010 shearing, Estrada had over 10 pounds of fleece, which is an incredible 6+% of his overall body weight!
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, 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!". Most recent fleece circuit, Estrada's fleece (its fourth showing) took yet another blue at PAOBA show, May, 2009.
To date, Estrada has multiple Champ/Reserve Championships, and over twenty 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.
