Larissa (Estrada's Larissa of Island Alpaca)

Larissa is an adorable little alpaca and stares at everybody with her big and curious eyes. She's always taking in her surroundings and is always curious of everything she sees and hears. She has absolutely astonishing fleece that has a bold crimp that reaches all the way to the tip! It's dense, uniformed, bright and just all in all very beautiful! It's no surprise since her dam is Lunette, who has won a champion and blues, and her sire is CT Estrada. Lunette's sire is our own Magic's Talon, who has won a champion and blues. Combining the power of Talon and Estrada, who has won multiple champions and blues, we got this amazing alpaca!

Lunette is a marvel! Fine lustrous crimp, and loads of it. She takes after he mom, with blue ribbons in hand and a color champion!

Island Alpaca 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!


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!". 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. 

Estrada is settling females. Traditional farm breedings with confirmed pregnancy, stud fee: $2,500, $2,000, mobile*, and $1,500 for drive-by breeding.  

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