Description

SALE! (Reduced from $9,000)

Arabella won First Place and Judge's Choice at the 2014 Gold Country Gathering Alpaca Spin-Off! She also won First Place at the TxOLAN Alpaca Spectacular Spin-Off and the Carolina Alpaca Celebration Spin-Off in 2015!

Arabella is a very gentle, curious, and patient alpaca who has very fine, dense, and uniform fleece. She has a bold crimp that comes with a long staple length. She has an amazing phenotype! She's thick-boned, has an impressive top-knot, has a strong frame, and just over all has the pleasing look of a true alpaca.

She has an amazing bloodline, especially from her dam's side. Aftiel's sire is the famous CCNF Archangel, a multiple champion winner. Her sire is CT Estrada who has won multiple champions and blues!

She has her dam Aftiel's curls on her face and her sire Estrada's gentle eyes. She's always interested in observing up close anything smaller than her like birds and children. She has such a sweet and gentle disposition! Extremely easy to handle.
