Recent News Flash: Lucca does it again. Blue ribbonfor Fleece at the 2015 MAPACA Jubilee in Pennsylvania... And what a history: Lucca won thecolor champion at the 2011 New England Alpaca Classic show! He was also awarded the reserve champion for the Tennessee Waltz 2013 Spin-Off. Lucca has won blue ribbons multiple times, 12 to be exact, this is very impressive for a male with a light color like his and for the amount of shows we are able to participate in.
Lucca is an incredible male who has very fine and tight crimped fleece. The fleece is very uniform and he has an amazing stature! He's phenotype is spot on with a wonderful conformation, a perfect bite, a strong frame, and a very pleasing look. He has nice long legs and a great top knot similar to the genetic trait clearly present also in his brother Khan D'Or.
Lucca's sire is our very own CT Estrada who has to his credit eight multiple champions and over 30 blues. His dam is Golden Frida and her sire, the well notedSnowmass Legacy Gold!
