Just a quick note to let you know that our Shackleton daughter, had her Compadre cria this morning. A jet back male! We're thrilled! Early indications are that he will be a winner! Beautiful luster. Fleece looks a lot like Gallant's fleece did right from the start, but in black. BTW Gallant just took 1st out of six this morning, then went on to win the Reserve Color Champion!! Two Res. Color Championships in his first two shows, at 7 months of age (judged by Maggie Krieger and Tim Lavan) certainly has us extremely excited.

Welcome to the Alpacas de la Patagonia Website. Proprietors, Karen Byram and Hugo Ulloa would like to invite you to pay a visit to their magical world of alpacas.
Our goal is to breed conformationally correct, fine-fleeced alpacas in a wide spectrum of colors. We have extensive experience raising alpacas in Chile, their native home. We bring this unique perspective to North America and are happy to share it with others. One of the most important aspects of our business is to help new alpaca breeders get started and to provide them with continuous support and education in their alpaca endeavors. Have a look around our site and enjoy. If you would like to get your hands in the soft fleeces of our alpacas, we hope you will consider a visit to our farm. We look forward to receiving your questions and comments.
Our top studs, including Patagonia's Lennox are now standing stud at Patagonia Estates. Owner, Nancy Chapel has been slowly and carefully building a superb colored huacaya herd over the years. With the infusion of our top genetics, we look forward to seeing spectacular results. We would like to thank Nancy for recognizing and acquiring the best of our 20 years of hard work. For information on how to obtain these genetics, please visit Patagonia Estates.
