Nisha (Estrada's Nisha of Island Alpaca)

Nisha won Second Place at the Southern Select Alpaca Show Spin-Off in 2015! She also won second place at the A-OK Alpaca Blast Off Fleece Show and at the STA Hummdinger Alpaca Fleece Show in 2014.  

Nisha, a spitting image of her dam, has beautiful, very fine, tightly crimped, high-frequency fleece, with very impressive 16.6 micron.  She has a great conformation and is very pleasing in personality. She's a very curious girl and loves to greet you when you enter the paddock.

Her sire is our very own CT Estrada who has won multiple champions and blues. Nisha's granddam is Snowmass Midnight's Gold who has produced show-stoppers. Nisha will sure to be a strong addition to any herd.  

Wonderful genetics Nisha has! Also includes: Greybeard, an 8x Champion Rosegrey Male, and Snowmass Peruvian Avalanche!

Breeding History:


Island Alpaca Captain Jack's Nightengale

ARI#: 31444774

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: Dark Fawn

Nightengale is a sweet girl with a beautiful face who has passed on her beauty to all of her cria. She has a very fine that is bright and dense. She has a curious nature and is a attentive, nurturing mother.

Her sire IAC Captain Jack has a wonderful lineage with his sire being the famous Greybeard! Her dam is our foundation girlSnowmass Midnight's Gold who is the three P's!! All around the perfect alpaca, with perfect disposition, and the perfect, nurturing mother! Midnight has produced show-stoppers for us. (Her first offspring, Andean Midnight was the highest paid maiden female alpaca in the world at the time, selling for $100,000 at auction). Nightengale has the same traits as her dam and she has been a fantastic mother to all of her cria!


CT Estrada

ARI#: 30522619

Heritage: Full Peruvian

Color: Medium Fawn

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 2012 shearing, Estrada had over 12.6 pounds of fleece sheared off. Amazing!!

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, 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 eight multiple Champ/Reserve Championships, and 27 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. Mobile breedings: $2,000. Drive-by breedings: $1,500.  Please compare this champ to other herd-sires with similar show records. You will find him to be a terrific value!
