Beautiful Taupie female

Rare Gem Tanzanite

HuacayaFemaleLight Silver Grey, Light Rose Grey, True Black
AOA# DOB: 10/14/20163 yrs
This U-Taupe-ia baby is stunning! Tanzanite has given us a beautiful healthy male cria. She is a great mom and loves looking after her boy. Tanzy was born at Rare Gem Alpacas and sold as a cria at side. She is a Taupie daughter with unique coloring. An "arrangement" was made and Tanzy's first offspring will be returning to Rare Gem Alpacas when he is old enough!...

Sequoia of Linden Hills

HuacayaMaleBeige
ARI# AOA# 35444831   DOB: 6/15/20173 yrs
Sequoia has settled his first female and he's looking to meet your ladies! If you are looking for a male with a long staple length, density, heavy fleece weight and high frequency crimp, Sequoia is your guy. His fleece is bright, ultra fine and has a heavenly handle. He is the son of our champion male, Valor, and his dam is Skyfall's grandmother. Excellent genetics on both sides of his pedigree! Because Sequoia is related to two of our breeding males, we are offering him for sale below market value. Sequoia is going to be a large male like his sire with heavy bone structure and sturdy frame. He will bring you high yields of fleece for many years to come! We expect Sequoia to be an...

Liberty Bell was our very first alpaca a gift from Arroyo Seco Alpacas. What a beautiful baby born on fourth of July, hence the name Liberty Bell.

ARI# AOA# 35296799   DOB: 10/14/20154 yrs

Apache Gentlemen

HuacayaMaleDark Fawn, Medium Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 35240655   DOB: 6/28/20155 yrs
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 appaloosa harlequin offspring. A definite plus for those breeding for spots. His sire, Windspun WSA Patriotic Gentleman, is an appaloosa as well. He's a blue ribbon winning male that sports a beautiful...

Patriotic Gentleman's sire is the multi-champion Hobby Horse Farm Great Expecations making his grandsire the well-known SA Peruvian Black Epic. Apache's dam, Excelsior's High Voltage Tazer, has an equally impressive background. She's the harlequin daughter of two very well-known appaloosas - NWA/Hearsum Paulo and Cookies and Cream. Apache is co-owned with Stone Pine Ranch in Colorado. He will be in Colorado during the summers and at Rare Gem Alpacas beginning each Fall. UPDATE: September 2019- Apache has arrived back in Southern California! So nice to have him back after he spent the summer in Colorado. He is going to have a busy winter! :-)

Tsunami is a proven harlequin producer and a foundation dam for Alpaca Rainbow Ranch's breeding program. Tsunami is a well packaged ½ Accoyo white female sired by true black TCB Hurricane.
