Huacaya, Male, Proven | Medium Silver Grey

ARI# 32513462, D.O.B. 8/10/2013

3/8 Peruvian, 3/8 Chilean

Estates Gray Beard is a handsome medium silver-grey male who has luxurious fine handle, bright, long staple length consistent into his legs and underbelly. He is dense with enormous coverage on legs and body. His crimp is everywhere - head, neck, into his legs, and belly. What a joy to work with! I admire his incredible good temperament for being a proven breeder. 

Gray Beard’s sire is none other than 17x Color Champion and 2x Judge’s Choice Winner, Aussie .38 Special. .38 Special is known to pass on his fine traits of brightness, fineness, density, and uniformity to

ESTATES HAIDEN :  

2X White Color/Res.  AOA National Champion!

Huacaya, Male, Proven | White

ARI# 35249498, D.O.B. 6/4/2014 

1/3 Peruvian and 3/8 Chilean

Haiden made me “burst my buttons” & ended up with a blue ribbon in his first show as a juvenile. He has performed well in the ring with 10 ribbons, but as a yearling in 2016 at The AOA National Championships, the Grandaddy of all AOA shows, , Haiden took the Male White Color Championship. We were overwhelmed with emotion! But now, our loss is your gain! Unfortunately, we don’t have another white male to take his place for The AOA National championships in 2017, but the Good News is YOU have the opportunity to not only add him to your show string, but Haiden is now breeding & has confirmed pregnancies. We are thrilled to offer this supreme male to our alpaca breeding colleagues who are working toward an improved breeding program to have the very best.

White multi-champion, Estates Haiden, won a blue ribbon in the Huacaya White 2 year Old Male at the California Classic Show 2017. Haiden is out of Snowmass Majesty in Moonlight and his dam is Janus's Hidden Key, a multi-winner Produce of Dam for the last few years. Judge Ken Hibbits was very complimentary in this consistent fleece, open crimpy long staple length and dense fleece. He has a strong frame, beautiful head, and awesome leg coverage. Unfortunately, there was no Color Champion for white halter male.

 

 
 

ESTATES MATTERHORN:

Huacaya, Male, Proven | Medium Brown

ARI# 35313106, D.O.B. 6/25/2015 (3 yrs), 3/8 Peruvian, 1/2 Chilean

2x Champion & Multi-Blues!

Multi-champion with a sweet, gentle disposition! You will fall in love with his fleece and with him!

Estates Matterhorn has been a Champion since his juvenile days. There are not too many animals that go to a show as a juvenile, get a blue ribbon in a large class, and then go on to win the Championship for their color! This is what happened to this unique male. Matterhorn has magnificent fine, silky crimp, yet has enormous density. He is uniform in micron and staple length. I had to practically stand on my head to see his crimp structure still present in the middle of his belly! Matterhorn's fleece has beautifully bright, zipper crimp and is consistent on shoulder, hind end, and into his legs. You can see a beautiful lock structure in his head. In our book, Matterhorn has one more attribute that is essential with our herdsires at ACE; a sweet, gentle disposition! 

Matterhorn has multi-champion genetics! His sire is our dark brown herdsire Andean's Pegasus of Country Estates, a 3x Color Championship winner at IAO. His paternal grandsire is Snowmass Andean Midnight, our beautiful, compact, "silky soft" male with an outstanding pedigree for fineness. Matterhorn's dam, Patagonia's Marinella was the Brown Color Champion at Alpacapalooza in 2013, and was assessed by Judge Amanda VandenBosch as an A- with strong points in all areas of conformation; as well as areas of fiber including fineness and handle, uniformity of micron, density, brightness, lack of medullation and coverage.

ESTATES SATIN CLOUD:

ARI# 32300703, D.O.B. 7/22/2014 (3 yrs), 7/8 Peruvian

Estates Satin Cloud, a true black multi-champion breeding male, took Second Place out of six behind the Color Champion at the AOA National Show in 2017. Satin Cloud is out of the one and only, Snowmass Satin Reserve XX and Premier’s Adriana. Satin is a well structured, proud male with a very handsome head. He is fine with beautiful curvature, consistent fleece, dense, and bright.

PATAGONIA'S EL COMISARIO:  

Huacaya, Male, Proven | True Black

ARI# 31698986, D.O.B. 7/13/2009

1/8 Peruvian, 7/8 Chilean

El Comisario is a spectacular boy with a true to type head, thick bone and a dense, crimpy fleece. El Comisario’s dam, Patagonia's Chic, is one of Patagonia's top true black females and descends from our best black female line. From this line, have come our most successful black alpacas such as Queen, Black Rose, Sombra, and Simone to name a few. All of these girls have won multiple black championships at level 5 shows and have all been AOBA National black color champions.

El Comisario is sired by El Vasco, Patagonia's top Neruda son. Like his sire, we expect El Comisario to maintain a soft hand in his fleece as he ages. We have had such success with this breeding combination that we have bred Chic to either El Vasco (Neruda son) and Neruda 7 times.​

 

​Closely related siblings to El Comisario include, Patagonia’s Juniper who sold as a maiden for $80,000, Patagonia’s Mondavi who was on our 2006 showstring and is now a working herdsire, Patagonia's Gaucho, a black herdsire on Patagonia's farm and Patagonia's Laelia. Comisario's first crias arrived in 2012!​
