We didn't know in summer of 2017 when we picked up two girls from Dancing Elk alpacas that we would be back again so soon. When we saw first hand how they are cared for, recognize the integrity and discernment made in a breeding program, we literally said we want to buy more but need to sell some first (Imagine that concept) Fortunately it worked out. We just love Isabella's maternal grandmother and we feel so very fortunate this girl was available.

Isabella, as beautiful as her name - Beautiful black out of silver grey parents. Off of Dancing Elk's site her sire, Argenta Granite passes on consistent crimp and long staple length to his multiple, award-winning offsrping.

To accentuate her beauty, she is a real sweetheart. Who travels from Montana to Idaho from showgrounds to SoCal and comes over to greet visitors or just chill ?

At the Great Western Alpaca Show 2017 she took a 1st in halter out of 11. Then in 2018 she took a 3rd in halter. She then took a 1st place in walking fleece above average scores in density and crimp/character, absence of guard hairs, uniformity. She received maximum score in uniformity of color (big hooray in true black) and 16.5 of 20 fineness/handle (a 19-20 AFD noted) AND a 7.5 of 10 in brightness! We recently decided to not only focus on uniformity of micron but more on brightness along with conformation. If looking at her beautiful head, bright fleece is not enough, "touch" her. We could not stop touching that blanket. Her histogram 21.7 micron with a 4 SD. Nice uniformity especially coming from two grey parents! We bred this girl to our uniform, fine grey Kit Carson son. They gave us a beautiful silver grey girl with a little black bolero jacket pattern. A keeper!

We sent off Isabella to breed to Champion El Dorado's Captain Jack Sparrow - Her boy is growing up nice and we are liking the brightness of his fleece
