Victor's Vaccoyo daughter!

ET Zuri

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Dark Brown, 1/2 Peruvian, 1/2 Chilean
ARI# 822297 | DOB: 6/23/2000

The hallmarks of Victor offspring are superior crimp, density, luster, fineness and excellent staple length along with an ability to transmit all of these qualities in a wide range of colors.

Packed with Legendary Appy Genetics!

Enchanted Hill LuTau

Huacaya, Herdsire (Male), Proven, Light Fawn, Dark Fawn
ARI# 35262589 | DOB: 5/16/2015
LuTau is a striking appaloosa male that has a good chance of being homozygous for the appaloosa gene, so you "serious" appaloosa breeders need to check this guy out! LuTau's fleece has incredible crimp, structure, and staple. If you are breeding for appaloosas, or are even considering breeding for this unusual pattern, LuTau is not one to miss!

His fleece is one to behold - great architecture in the long staple, with blinding brightness and consistency. And check out his histogram from a s...

Bidding Info


Blondie is a tall, well built girl with great density and beautiful, consistent fiber. She takes after her color champion dad (OVA Kiernan of St. Andrews, 3x get of sire winner) in her fleece, and her mom (see ET Zuri) in her build – she’s got the best of both worlds! She’s the half-sister to many color champions and a Judge's Choice at the 2013 California Classic.

Blondie is a great mom and easy birther. She has thrown color all over the spectrum and we expect great things for her when bred to appaloosa! Her first result with appy was a mottled fawn, sired by Billabong. Now she has been exposed to our fantastic appy male, LuTau, for a Summer 2019 cria! LuTau is a multiple time blue ribbon winner, sporting the fleece of an elite fawn, but in beautiful appy. With both his parents being appaloosa, this boy will prove his colors this Fall with his first cria due in late September.

This pairing is not one to be missed!

Production History:

On October 5, 2014, Blondie had a gorgeous female cria out of Snowmass Velvet Legend!

On October 30, 2015, Blondie had a true black male cria with exceptional fleece from our 4x champ silver grey herdsire, Sebastian! Blondie is a great mom with lots of milk.

On January 11, 2017, Blondie had a bay black male cria with super soft, crimpy fleece from our stunning rose grey herdsire, Snowmass Enlightenment!

On Feb. 10, 2018, Blondie gave us a lovely male, sired by the late, great harlequin appy stud, Billabong! She'll be bred back for appy again, this time around to LuTau!
