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 ...

Bidding Info


This beautiful young boy is sired by FTAF's Privateer-- the son of true black SHVN The Buccaneer who took his 13th banner at 7 years old! Privateer is a stunning champion that possesses awesome structure and the brightness to his fleece is blinding. He has a gorgeous head and coverage everywhere. Privateer's fleece is that "elite" fleece with bundles everywhere and secondary bundles coming out of each bundle, even down to his knee and under his belly and on his chest.

Like daddy, Davidson has beautiful fleece character and you can feel the density. His dad's skin biopsy results from 2017 (at 5yrs old by Dr. Norm Evans) showed a density of 71 follicles/sqmm. SP ratio is 12.1 to 1 with level 4 of 4 gland presence which correlates with what senior judges are referring to as “well-nourished fleeces”. Secondary fibers average 21.9 microns and primary fibers averaging 30.1 giving him a variation of only 8.2 microns.

UPDATE On Davidson's Sire:
Privateer is aging gracefully. Six year (2018) stats... AFD 20.9 / SD 3.9 / CV 18.5 / CF 98% / %>30: 2% Lasting fineness is a signature trait of this line!!

March 2019 UPDATE:
Davidson attended his first show and 1st of 13 in his Walking Fleece class and then Fawn Reserve Color Champion Walking Fleece (25 total). Way to go Davidson!!
