Bidding Info


Yowza! is all you can say when you look at his fleece. We are so proud to offer you the the opportunity to get in on a great Jr. Herdsire, Alpaca Palace's Tank Commander. He has all the attributes of what we look for in our next up and coming boys to join our Herdsire Row. If we could not make another one, he would not be in this auction. Having said that, we realize that you have to offer your best of the best in a seed stock auction and that is just what Tank Commander is. Perfect in his overall conformation, typey full fleeced huacaya head style, aligned bite, boxy athletic frame, and fine high amplitude crimp fleece extending across the blanket and into his extremities. His pedigree is somewhat unique, which will make him a good out-cross in your breeding program. His Judges' Choice, Multi-champioin Sire, Sunset Hills Farm Andean Gold, gives us offspring with long lasting fineness and character. Mix that with Tank's Dam, LAAF Paladin's Belledin, who we have identified as one of our best producing foundations females on our farm, and you get a real winner! We're making alpacas GREAT again and I'm sure Tank Commander will do it for you!
