"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.

Description

June 7, 2019... National Doughnut Day... go figure... this handsome silky appaloosa boy... Dunkin' was born. At 359 days gestation, Dunkin weighed in at 19.5 pounds. From the very beginning, it was very clear that Dunkin's fleece was something out of the ordinary. Aside from the spots, which we had bred for, Dunkin's fleece was ultra-fine, ultra-bright and almost "locky". He will be cria-shorn in the near future, so in the months ahead, we will be able to get a better grasp for how his fleece will develop. I have no doubt Dunkin's fleece will be ideal handspun... raw. A spinner's dream! Not one for the mill.

Dunkin' 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. Buyer's 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.

A little about Dunkin's dam... Krispy Kream carries the impressive quality bloodlines of her grandsires SA Peruvian Black Epic and PPPeruvian Grand Master. This quality breeding shows through in her proud carriage, beautiful conformation, super straight topline, upright elegant neck carriage and perfectly straight legs with good strong bone. She also has amazing coverage.

Krispy Kream has fiber and stats to be proud of. At age 11 (2018), she is 22 micron and EPDs are in the top 5% in 3 categories (AFD, SD, SF) and top 1% (fibers >30)... 377 of the 44,969 female alpacas tested in 2018. Krispy carries the appaloosa gene from the Black Epic line. She proved this genetic propensity when bred to Charles P. Atlas, a non-appaloosa gene carrier and they produced the wildly spotted appaloosa Dottie Biscotti (2011). So, while Dunkin's sire is an appaloosa, he could very well be homozygous for the appaloosa gene as both his parents carry it.

And a little about Dunkin's sire... Rare Gem XXXteme Spots. 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 is that he carries elite-fleeced heavy hitter lines in his pedigree such as Legacy, El Nino, and XXXtreme (out of Hemingway) ALONG WITH the expressed appy gene! Spots sports a fleece you would expect from such a stellar pedigree. He is dense and fine and FULL of crimp! Lasting fineness is in the genes, Dunkin's paternal grandfather-- Sai-Hoji, was 21 micron at 11 years old.
