Comments: 

It was love at first sight...

Patagonia's Ferro is exactly what we had been searching for to take our breeding program to the next level. Perfect conformation and the lightest silver grey you can imagine. It appears to have just a hint of lavender that sparkles with brightness when you open him up. He has royal grade fineness and a fantastic crimp densely covering his frame from top to bottom.

His pedigree is filled with notable names that have had a significant impact on the Alpaca industry. His Sire Patagonia's EL Vasco has a reputation of producing champion offspring. Grand-sires include Patagonia's Neruda and Danko. Great Grand-sires include Shackleton, and PPeruvian Pluro.

Stud Fee: $1,500 Please contact Black Hill's Alpacas
