Bidding Info


This is one handsome well-grown appaloosa boy. He participated in three shows this Spring and is off to a great start. His fleece is carrying the desired traits we like to see AND in the appaloosa expression. His appaloosa genetics comes from his dad... Rare Gem XXXtreme Spots. Please check dad out for skin biopsy (density) and lasting fineness stats.

X Man was joined by two paternal appaloosa brothers in June. We will not be able to utilize 3 sons and a father in the Rare Gem herd and am offering two of the four for sale. Buyers choice of one or two males, after those are sold... the other 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. Buyers may purchase now and free boarding is included until weaned.

X-Man is currently offered in a special promotion under "packages". With purchase of two alpacas in the package, a 20% discount will be given on both alpacas.
