Description

Anika won the highest scoring fleece in her color group at the TxOLAN Spin-Off for 2016 and she won First Place! Amazing! Anika also won the blue at the Sunshine State Alpaca Expo Spin-Off in 2015, she won First Place at the 2013 National Champions' Alpaca Spin-Off and the 2013 Alpacapalooza Spin-Off.

Anika, just like her sisters and brother: Angelica, Angelito, Silver Angel, and Penelope look just like their dam Angelina, a champion ribbon winner.

Anika's fleece is a beautiful white that is lustrous and very fine, but nicely dense.

Anika, just like all of her siblings and dam, have an almost perfect phenotype! They have great conformation with a strong frame, they are thick-boned, have impressive top-knots, nice thick short muzzles, and overall a beautiful and pleasing look. Angelina seems to have very strong genetics! Anika's sire CT Estrada who has won multiple champions and blues.

She's becoming a great alpaca and she loves to sun bathe outside on nice sunny days! A sweet girl who is quite curious and very easy to handle. Very patient just like her dam!
