Banderas is retired as a breeder. His info is here for reference. His last cria was a very dense and uniformly fine brown handsome little male - Spyker. Spyker is winning awards with his wonderful fleece! He is currently being offered as a junior herdsire and will likely be ready to breed starting 2024. Banderas is an EPD Top 1%er! His stats are excellent overall, but his EPD in staple length soars. Did you read Ian Watt's article in Alpacas Magazine? YES, length matters! To that end, we are ...

Dasher is a COLOR CHAMPION. Dasher took 1ST PLACE and 'MEDIUM' COLOR CHAMPION at the Fiber Fusion Northwest Fleece Show under judge Ruth Elvestad. 19/20 Uniformity (micron consistency) and 15/15 for Brightness!

Banderas' Dasher has a BREATHTAKING FLEECE with SILKY HANDLE, GREAT DENSITY, AMAZING BRIGHTNESS, and LOVELY CRIMP STYLE. He has always had that 'look at me' (shall we say 'dashing'?) PRESENCE as well. His head is very TYPEY just like his dam's and his legs are STRAIGHT and BALANCED with a nice broad chest. Dasher has ELITE GENETICS as well as depth of color in his background including grey. He would be wonderful for any color breeding program.

Dasher's sire is MULTI-CHAMPION rose grey SPANISH PEAKS BANDERAS. Banderas is producing amazing fineness (as low as 15 microns) on a variety of gorgeous colors including grey and black. He is a VICTOR grandson and his parents are directly from the Snowmass breeding program. Banderas has also produced top award winners including National Brown Color Champion Sweet Pines Torino, Dasher's 3/4 brother.

Dasher's dam, SWEET PINES CIERA, also has wonderful genetics and fineness in her background: top Peruvian herdsires 4PERUVIAN LEGACY and PERUVIAN EL MOUSTACHIO. Ciera is an award winner for her fleece and maintains a low micron very soft fleece well into adulthood. She has produced wonderful offspring, all of them with lasting fineness.

Banderas' Dasher is owned by Sweet Pines Alpacas. He is a wonderful example of the kind of quality Banderas is throwing and would be terrific in a package combination with Condor's Raya.
