Gaucho’s dam is one of our top true black females and descends from our top 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.
Gaucho is sired by the exotic Neruda who sold at auction for $200,000+ at the age of 8 years. Like his sire, we expect Gaucho to maintain a soft handle to his fleece as he ages. We have had such success with this breeding combination that we have repeated it 5 times. Full siblings to Guacho 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 at Greenbriar Farm in WI.
Gaucho has a true black, soft, dense fleece that exhibits a consistent high-frequency crimp throughout his blanket.
