Roberto (Estrada's Roberto of Island Alpaca)

Roberto won First Place at the Southern Select Alpaca Show Spin-Off in 2015! Roberto also won First Place at the Big E and STA Hummdinger Alpaca Fleece Show in 2014.

Roberto is one to watch, with excellent fleece characteristics. His fleece is dense, uniform with strong definition of staple, fine and bright. A fabulous phenotype!

He's an eye-catching young animal who is sure to merit herd sire status in the future. His fleece characteristics are excellent. He has a very fine, light fawn fleece with medium frequency, low amplitude crimp style with nice structure that carries into his extremities.

He has good density and coverage, and spot-free. His conformation is excellent, with very attractive bloodlines.

His sire is our very own CT Estrada who has won multiple champions and blues! Pax/Alacante/Platinum/Evander genetics!

Roberto too is very social. He loves to greet everyone that comes. A great public relation animal to boot.   

Price will include retained breedings.

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!
