El Traco Gran Finale
IAO Commercial Fleece Color Champion
What's all the noise about? An explosion of long bright bursts of crimp emanating from a dense blanket that covers tip to stern and topline to belly on a tall, elegant frame that seems to glide rather than walk.
Perfect conformation, perfect bite, sweet disposition, and rich buttery UNIFORM Expresso dark fiber-what's not to like? After winning 2 second place ribbons at fiber shows, IAO (Canadian rules) and Alpacamania, Traco's 6 month blanket sold for $5.00/oz (over $180.00).
Maintaining at age, El Traco won the Dark Color Bale Fleece Championship at the 2014 International Alpaca Odyssey under Canadian Rules. He also won first in walking cottage fleece and second at cottage halter. The judge commended both 1st and 2nd place winners for their beautiful fleece structure, uniformity and length. Son of 8x champion Patagonia's El Trauco, El Traco Gran Finale started his show career with a blue ribbon at Showcase 2012 in Halter and another for Breeder's Best Yearling at Alpacamania. In 2013 El Traco reprised his PNAA Showcase Blue ribbon at halter under judge Sharon Loner for his outstanding uniformity, outstanding phenotype and growth for age. To date, Traco has never been bested by another dark brown in the show ring or fleece show.
