Aquinnah, named after the ancient tribal town on the South Easter Coast of Martha's Vineyard has done her mom and dad proud. Aquinnah has had the benefit of inheriting both of her parents positive traits. She has the most lustrous, fine fleece, and lots of it!

Loads of personality and grace Pietro's Aquinnah will likely become a terrific producer like her dam Molly.

Aquinnah, named after the an ancient Wampanoag Indian tribal town, situated on the west coast of Martha's Vineyard, formerly known as Gay Head, entered the world on Mother's Day, 2008 without disruption.

She had a very strong immunity level at birth, (IgG) an was up and about in no-time. She has a very fine fleece, and we could expect it to remain very fine, as her sire, Pietro, at 3 years of age, was at 21 micron.


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!
