Golden Frida


 Golden Frida is sired by the most decorated Snowmass Legacy Gold who sold for $500,000 at the Making of Champions Private Selection Sale in 2006. His half brother Snowmass Invincible sold for a world record price of $580,000 in 2005. These are the two highest selling males in alpaca auction history. His Grand sire, 4P Legacy also sold for $750,000 for 1/2 interest which is the highest selling private treaty sale* -- Please read about him below.

We are thrilled to have this magnificent female as part of our herd, at Island Alpaca.

In 2008 she has produced her first offspring, and has been a terrific mom. This pairing was with A.L.Paca's Simba which resulted in a superfine male, (16.7 micron) we now name, Khan d'Or, or Golden Khan. ( he is often refered to as "Golden Boy" here at the farm, as he is truly solid gold! Please do not miss Frida's Khan d'Or in the show ring in 2009.

With Frida's fabulous lineage and a terrific service sire, CT Estrada, you MUST keep your eyes on Frida for cria this year, a brilliant male, born May 15, 2010. This incredible offspring, with tight, crimpy curls, is certain to be a show stopper-- please come and take a look!

Frida's Grand Sire, is again, the notable 4Peruvian Legacy 6016, born on the Accoyo Estancia in 1994 and imported ito the USA in the fourth Peruvian Importation in 1996. Legacy left and indelible mark on the North American Alpaca Industry. he was perhaps one of, if not the most notable alpaca in the world by virtue of both his production of excellence and his record-setting sales numbers. Twice he was the highest selling alpaca in history and he still holds that distinction. At the Futurity, he was the Herd Sire of the year in 2002 and the Reserve Light Herd Sire of the Year in both 2005 and 2007. It is conceivable, if not probable, that he would have won that award a couple more times in the late 1990's had such an award been established. his sons and daughters, and grandchildren have garnered countless ribbons and Championships during a span which covered a decade all over the nation. He became important to many programs by virtue of his sons and daughters.

We at Island Alpaca Co. are very proud and to have his genetics in our herd!


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!
