Since day one it was known this boy was going to be quite special. As he has grown and progressed, has not disappointed. If you are looking for perfect phenotype with an excellent handling, dense fleece, you have found your male!

Argento is a gray son of FTAF's Blackbeard and grandson of Grand River Columbo. He displays terrific conformation, a beautiful head, and his dense fiber is very fine with excellent handle and architecture.

As you look at his ARI you can see his impressive bloodlines and grey ancestry that goes back for generations. Take a look at a few of the names, Blackbeard, Buccaneer, Pot of Gold,Royal Inca Legend, Columbo, Rincon Cloud & Rayo Del Sol.

As Argento has matured, his fleece just keeps getting better which is what we like to see in a fleece.

The judges agree as his show record keeps improving. He has taken home the Reserve Championships from the Michigan Show (2018) in both Halter and Walking Fleece against some very tough competition along with the Reserve Walking Fleece at the Buckeye Fall Fest (2018) where the Judge remarked that we have a very special alpaca with a true blue/gray fleece that is hard to find. That was rewarded with a Reserve Championship in walking fleece.

As one walking fleece judge stated. "There really isn't much to improve on here. He is lovely."
We agree! He really is a full package.

Argento has settled females in 2019 and his first cris will hit the ground summer of 2020

Proudly co-owned with Alpacas of Indian Point Hills and Acadiana Alpacas
