"Spots" is a new comer to the appaloosa alpaca scene. Spots' appaloosa gene comes from NGG Lional-- a known appaloosa carrier that has been well-proven in Canada but is rather rare in the United States. In the past... in the United States... the appy program has been focused on achieving the spots which required certain genetic combinations, but unfortunately... not always best known for outstanding fleece qualities. What is so special about Spots from an appaloosa breeder program perspective ...

10/17/18 - Faith throws a handsome appaloosa cria. Faith likes to throw fully baked cria in record time. This little guy was born 15 lbs. at 323 days gestation. This makes 3 cria for Faith in 2 years!! And all three are harlequin / appaloosas. Faith has now proven that even though she has no appaloosa-harlequin gene carriers in her pedigree, when bred to the right boy... she can reliably produce exactly what is hoped for!

Bidding Info


Is your goal to produce elite-fleeced appaloosas with fiber highly sought after by hand-spinners?! Here is a boy for your consideration. This is one handsome well-grown appaloosa junior herdsire. He participated in three shows Spring 2019 and is off to a great start. His fleece is carrying the desired traits we like to see AND in the appaloosa expression! X-Man's appaloosa genetics come from his sire... Rare Gem XXXtreme Spots and can be followed back to the original US carrier- NGG Lional.

X-Man carries elite-fleeced heavy hitters in his pedigree such as Legacy, El Nino, and Snowmass XXXtreme. These elite-fleeced alpacas are known for their lasting-fineness and density. Accoyo America Sai-Hoji was 21 micron at 11 years of age!

Not only does X-Man sport a sweet, easy-to-handle disposition... his fleece is exactly what you would expect from such a stellar pedigree. He is dense and fine and FULL of crimp! He has a tight primary to secondary ratio with an AFD of 20, SD 3.7 and Fibers Greater than 30=0.6%. Expect lasting fineness from this guy!
