And a little history on Harley... Years ago I looked out into a large herd of alpacas when I was visiting a ranch and one alpaca in particular caught my eye. Before I even knew what a harlequin was, the stunning Bella Gris started my journey to learn about harlequins and what makes them so very special. In 2016, I had an opportunity to add this beautiful harlequin daughter of Bella Gris to my herd. Their looks are very different, one a very light silver grey platinum harlequin and the other a darker version-- both simply exquisite! While Harley's color is a variation of her dam's, she carries the same beautiful phenotype of her dam and sire-- LV Vantaggio Di Bisturi--with fleece to die for. And for those Bisturi and Assie Rockford lovers-- Harley is the granddaughter of both!

2017 - Super exciting news! Harley's dam, Bella Gris, joined the Rare Gem Foundation Herd in March!! The alpaca that started this wonderful journey will now be residing here on the Rare Gem ranch. Please check out her Openherd page under "Foundation Females".
