Details
Since day one it was known this boy was going to be quite special. As he has grown, he 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 and a beautiful head. 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 stretching for generations. Take a look at a few of the names: Blackbeard, Buccaneer, Pot of Gold, Royal Inca Legend, Columbo, Rincon Cloud, and Rayo Del Sol.

As Argento has matured, his fleece just keeps getting better, which is what exactly what we are looking for 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. He also took 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.

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.
