Mr. Butterscotch 

Serious harlequin appaloosa.

Mr. Butterscotch

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Light Silver Grey, 7/8 Peruvian, 1/8 Chilean
ARI# 30320970 | DOB: 9/15/2005
Mr. Butterscotch (AKA Scottie, or “Mister Scot” for the serious Star Trek fan) was one of those alpacas whose photo I had seen and gone, “WOW.” Well, sometimes the stars align, and now, months later, we are proud to have Scottie join our stud row.

Scottie is a very light silver harlequin appaloosa. His sire was a dark harlequin son of the renowned DPA Quetzal, son of Timoteo. His dam, My Peruvian Zuleika, was a powerful producer for Magical Farms. She is also the dam of multiple-champion gre...

Snowmass Matrix dtr - made harlequin!!

Snowmass Matrix Chasqui

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Beige, Medium Fawn, Medium Brown, Full Peruvian
ARI# 31541138 | DOB: 7/2/2008

Chasqui is our very own daughter of the renowned Snowmass Matrix. She was brought to our farm as part of my quest to bring the genetics of 6Peruvian Accoyo Elite to our herd, and she is a perfect fit with her patterned fleece.

Her sire probably needs no introduction to anyone in the alpaca world. Snowmass Matrix is very famous for having sold for a whacking $675,000 at auction. He is also known for stamping his get with beautiful heads, great bone, coverage, and dense, fi...

Bidding Info


Meet Francesca Fiore. I went completely nuts when this one was born ... Can you blame me? Her dam, Snowmass Matrix Chasqui (daughter of, needless to say, Snowmass Matrix) delivered in the afternoon, and produced exactly what I had not even dared hope for: a harlequin appaloosa daughter. She was born fawn, with just a few black spots on her belly, but with our Harlequin boy Mr. Butterscotch as her sire, I knew what those spots meant.

Francesca is a tall, elegant girl with huge amounts of energy. She has perfect conformation, a beautiful head, and soft, dense fleece. Her shearing day transformation was quite dramatic, as her blanket went from spotless medium fawn to a beautiful gunmetal grey with a faint merle pattern.

Francesca's fleece is dense and soft, with a lovely handle. I suspect that her 2nd fleece is going to outshine her first.

With perfect conformation, an amazing head, and spectacular coloring, it's really tough to price this girl -- not to mention the fact that she is one of the only Harlequin Appaloosa Matrix granddaughters on the market. However, she looks as though she may mature to be a bit taller than what we are breeding for, so she has been priced at $6500. This includes full reproductive guarantees as well as a breeding to any of our herdsires.
