We are excited to announce the addition of what we consider the best Accoyo Titan son who holds incredible EPD numbers and is a producer of Champion offspring in the show ring, PC RUNNING LATE!

He's here! and more beautiful than I could have hoped. Running Late is very impressive looking like a two year old macho with loads of presence, perfect conformation and bite, full topknot.

We have females bred to Running Late on our sales list-we have 12 confirmed pregnancies, all but one wit...

HERITAGE STUD FEMALE-Our addition to our herd from the Magical Farms 2014 final auction. We were looking for extreme fineness and genetics of Matrix and Running Late, who is the sire of Cyncity's dam and we got it all in one girl. Unfortunately she lost twin Armoire girls this spring, she is rebred to MFI Armoire due to deliver summer 2016. Another girl! CYNSATIONAL is Light fawn with loads of crimp and perfect conformation. We usually only keep 2 girls for our production herd but in 2016...

Handsome Appaloosa Harlequin Stud!

Apache Gentlemen

ARI# 35240655 | DOB: 6/28/2015
Oh, my oh my! Apache is a proven herdsire with cria on the ground! Sometimes words just aren't enough. If you are looking for an appaloosa harlequin stud to cover your girls and create something truly unique, look no further. This boy has it all!

Apache's pedigree is packed (on both sides) with outstanding appaloosas and harlequins. It is highly probable that Apache is homozygous meaning you do not have to breed him to another harlequin or appaloosa to get a good chance of producing an appa...

Bidding Info


It is with significant research and discretion that we add to the Rare Gem herd. In 2018, Peaches rose to the top during the search for our program... Peaches was a stand-out. She got a "check" in every box! Thank you Pat Martin and Giselle (Heritage Alpacas) for producing this beautiful girl. We have very special plans for her. ;-)

Peaches is a beauty! She is a line breed of fawn Matrix daughter Cyncity to her grandsire, PC Running Late. Peaches has a beautiful head and robust, correct frame showing true Huacaya type. Her fleece is exquisite-- bright, soft-white and crimpy from tips to skin with light to medium fawn spots up the back and neck. Please check out her histogram and EPDs.

Peaches has very dark eyes, palate and toenails. Density is excellent. And not be be overlooked, she has a very sweet, friendly and curious personality.

In January 2019, wildly spotted appaloosa harlequin, Apache Gentleman, was selected for Peaches maiden breeding. We are very excited about this pairing!

UPDATE!! On March 1, 2020, Peaches gave birth to the most beautiful lil appaloosa female... she was born at 2:15 AM (thus named Night Owl). The cria is all that I had hoped for and the breeding will be repeated for a 2021 offspring. Way to go Peaches and Apache! :-)
