If you are looking for an appaloosa male... maybe two? For your consideration...

At Rare Gem alpacas, we have been "blessed" with appaloosa males from our appaloosa herdsire XXXtreme Spots. We had hoped for a couple of girls... but sometimes you get more beautiful boys than you can utilize in one breeding program. As a result, we are offing two of the four for sale. Buyer's choice of 1 or 2 males. After those are sold... the remaining two will be retained for the Rare Gem breeding program. Please note, if buyer prefers one or two of the younger boys, they cannot move to their new home until weaned. Free boarding included until weaned.

While all four boys are appaloosas, each offers unique opportunities for breeders, fiber artists and fanciers. In brief...

Option #1: RG XXXtreme Spots (father to the three boys listed): Spots is 5 years old-- just one year into his breeding career. He is in perfect health, easy to handle and an easy breeder. He is proven to throw appaloosas... whether the dam carries the gene or not. He is dense and from a line known for lasting fineness. Spots is being offered at a price that is less than the amount of income he brought in last year in "outside" breedings-- at that time, an unproven male. Add this young stud to your program and start "making" beautiful appaloosas today!

Option#2: RG X-Man is a handsome appaloosa Jr. Herdsire. He is well-grown for his age and will be 1 year old on 9-29-19. Part of the 2019 Rare Gem show crew, he held his own at just barely 6 mos. of age. Result? 1st, 2nd & 3rd place in 3 classes / 2 shows. His fiber sample was sent to Yocum-Mcoll on 8/7/19 and histogram and EPDs will be posted as soon as they are received.

Option #3: RG Chuckles is a reverse appaloosa out of a champion platinum harlequin dam. With a classic appy dad and harlequin appy mom, Chuckles is very possibly homozygous for the appy / harlequin gene-- great news for appaloosa / harlequin breeders. Additionally, Chuck is very unique in that he is a reverse appaloosa-- meaning that his base color is the darker color-- in his case, fawn based with light spots. Chuck is already showing nice density and popcorn fleece. Buy him now, show him in the Spring and he will be ready to begin breeding before you know it.

Option #4: RG Dunkin' the prolifically spotted silky appaloosa that was born on National Donut Day! He steals everyone's heart... immediately. His fleece is BRIGHT and superfine. His dam, at age 11, is in the top 1% for % fibers > than 30, and top 5% in AFD (fineness), SD and SF and top 15% in fleece weight! Dunkin's is a fleece that you wouldn't want to send to a mill. Spin it raw and you will have a one of a kind yarn to use on a one of a kind project.

All Rare Gem Alpacas come halter and trailer trained, current on vaccines, deworming protocols, annual "maintenance", i.e., shearing and nails trimmed... and will eat "treats" from your hand. :-)
