We have been looking for a new addition to our appaloosa line-up, and when we found Confetti, it was time to make a move. He'll be arriving in Virginia soon and we are hoping he will be ready to settle some girls in the spring.

Take a look at his cria photo, and tell us you wouldn't want a pasture full of cuties like that. Along with Bo and Speks, we think we have a super line-up of appy herdsires, and we picture one day having nothing but appaloosa adults making up the whole breeding herd. ...

This could well be the nicest cria we've ever had born at Enchanted Hill. Yasbo has superb conformation, along with fine, crimpy, well-bundled fiber. She is covered head to toe and has those little short, spikey "carrot" ears. On top of this, what a personality! Stand in the barn a minute or two and you'll find someone nibbling at your coat sleeve or shirt tail and when you turn to look, there's the cutest little alpaca you've ever seen. She may dart away and kick up her heels, but she'll be ba...

Description


Appy-Go-Lucky, or "Lucky, is a wildly spotted appaloosa whose parents are both appaloosas. Until just a few years ago, appaloosas were so rare that an appaloosa-to-appaloosa breeding was unheard of. Part of this was due to the misunderstanding of the appaloosa gene which had been called a recessive, a partial dominant, an incomplete dominant, or even an "unknown".

We have learned much about the appaloosa gene(s)... and this guy has a pedigree packed with those that are most expressive and colorFULL. This guy will be ideally matched with lighter colored females to produce the best chances for beautiful spotted offspring. Or... throw in that black gene! That is always an exciting option. :-)

Either way, Lucky is the perfect "next generation" for colors and patterns here at Rare Gems Alpacas and for the serious appaloosa breeder.

UPDATE: I am thrilled to say that Lucky has matured nicely this year and just settled his first two females! I have had several interested buyers in Lucky... but I am not willing to let him go full-time. Ideally, I am open to leasing or selling a half interest in Lucky for farms located in an area with moderate summer climates. I do not breed from June 1 through November 15 due to high temperatures in Southern California. If you are a farm interested in infusing your herd with some fabulous appaloosa genetics and this timeframe works for you, please contact me for more details.
