Description

Looking for a rare opportunity to break into the Harlequin Appaloosa scene with a BIG splash? ... You just found it.

Renegade is a very rare, very unique Harlequin Appaloosa junior herdsire with an awful lot to offer. He hails from one of the rarest, yet highest-quality, Harlequin bloodlines out there: the Amy Carter line. Amy Carter was the only breeding offspring of a Chilean import dam, and she is truly an impact female in the Harlequin Appaloosa Huacaya landscape. Her bloodline is notable not only because of its overall outstanding quality, but because of its prepotency for the Harlequin Appaloosa phenotype itself. Whereas many Harlequin Appaloosa lines tend to be "sneaky" -- the gene remaining hidden in the background for generations -- Amy Carter's descendents have a strong tendency to breed true.

Such is the case with Renegade's sire, Paparazzi. Paparazzi is out of a true Appaloosa daughter of Amy Carter, AOA Chelsea, and his production record for Harlequin and Appaloosa has been quite good when bred correctly. (Harlequin breeders will recognize the importance of matching a Harlequin up with the proper coloring to achieve the desired result.) Not only has Paparazzi produced quite a number of Harlequins -- and a few Appaloosas -- and quite a number of champions, he has produced a couple of truly unique Harlequins ... And Renegade is one of them.

When I first saw Renegade's photograph, I knew I HAD to have him. Born silver with dramatic spots all over his body and a wild, "Rorschach" pattern on his face, I had never seen another alpaca like him -- until I saw the photo of his 1/2 brother, Rio. So, two totally wild, unique Harlequins -- both by Paparazzi.

That isn't all that Paparazzi did for his offspring, however. Renegade's fleece is not just a beautiful color -- it's a really, really nice fleece. He is fine (right around 20 AFD on both 1st and 2nd fleeces) and uniform with a CV <20 on his 2nd shearing. This, coupled with an outstanding brightness, gives his fleece a marvelous hand. His staple length is excellent and he has good density and a high-frequency, low-amplitude crimp style. These aren't traits that are unique to Renegade, though ... We own two of his paternal brothers, and all three have this same super-soft, super-bright, beautiful fleece. There is a reason that Paparazzi made champions.

Renegade is the largest of his sibling group. His conformation is impeccable. He has excellent presence and a gorgeous head. In many ways, he is the best out of the three.

Why, then, is Renegade even being priced? Well, the reality is that we do own two of his siblings, and neither of them is even remotely for sale. Renegade is a truly unique, incredible animal, and he deserves to be breeding. He will be breeding here, but, because of the competition on our farm, perhaps not as much as he should be. Here is a rare opportunity.
