Chase Tavern Estrada
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!".

date, Estrada has multiple Champ/Reserve Championships, and over twenty
first-place, blue-ribbon awards. See the details of his show record

In 2009, Estrada's Fleece

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. Please compare this champ to other herd-sires with similar show records. You will find him to be a terrific value!
