Carlo (Estrada's Carlo of Island Alpaca)

Carlo has been awarded a number of blue ribbons: A Blue at the Big E Alpaca Show and the Blue at the Green Mountain Fall Spectacular Fleece show (2013).

Carlo has fabulous tight crimp that is very fine and bright. His fleece is dense and has a long staple length. A sought-after  phenotype. Gorgeous top-knot, large-boned, great proportions overall with a strong and balanced frame, short muzzle, and overall a very pleasing style. 

Carlo is very patient and easy to handle. A pleasure to work with and very well halter trained.

Carlo's sire is CT Estrada, a multiple champion and blue ribbon winner. His dam AOCR Carlie Rose has a great lineage, with some grey genetics! 

A terrific value for a blue ribbon winner!

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!!

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.
