Beauchner's Jasmine

HuacayaFemaleBeige
AOA# DOB: 6/1/200714 yrs
We first acquired Jasmine's daughter Venus. We liked her so much that I said if she was ever for sale, I would buy her. Sadly with the passing of Alan Clark, we were able to do this. Jasmine's first cria was a gorgeous MSG female out of super fine and dense Lancaster's Silver Centaur. She is better known as the Dam of the 10x (or more) Gray Champion Quixotic's Man of Steel. Her daughter Venus who we are lucky enough to own is a full sister of the Dam of Man of Steel. On our farm, Jasmine has given us 2 (so far) amazing cria. Neither one has a guard hair on them and the MOST buttery soft fleece. 6/15 - Jasmine just gave us a tall handsome LF male cria out of AOV Accoyo...

Rare Gem XXXtreme Spots

HuacayaHerdsire (Male)White
ARI# AOA# 35195405   DOB: 7/1/20146 yrs
In my search for an appaloosa, I came to find that finding one on the East Coast (that wasn't related to the girls I wanted to use him on) was not an easy task. Last fall, I found Spots at Rare Gem Alpacas and his track record for throwing spots was "spot" on. Spots arrived in Pennsylvania in the Fall of 2019 and we put him to work immediately. He has an easygoing personality, gets the job done quickly and efficiently and the fleece - well, I don't know that I've had one this dense ever. His shearing this year produced nearly 50% more fiber than anyone else. As you can see from the pictures, the spots are apparent right after shearing but blend in once the fleece grows in. Contac...

AOA# DOB: 9/17/200911 yrs
Hope is just that - she was our last hope for a girl the year she was born. Finally after the birth of 6 boys, we finally got one with indoor plumbing! Hope is everything we knew she would be - a breeding with our best girl + our best guy = fantastic! Hope does have a brown spot on her shoulder so she should be able to produce color when bred to color. We've worked hard to achieve our white breeding program and it's paying off with crimp and density along with some of the best and the straightest conformation I've seen. Hope is worth a look if you want to breed for quality white animals. Hope gave birth to her first cria in October 2013. She's the cutest little pip and we just lov...

His shearing this year produced nearly 50% more fiber than anyone else. As you can see from the pictures, the spots are apparent right after shearing but blend in once the fleece grows in. Contact us to put spots in front of your eyes! For a little bit of his history, his previous owner wrote: "Spots" is a new comer to the appaloosa alpaca scene. Spots' appaloosa gene comes from NGG Lional-- a known appaloosa carrier that has been well-proven in Canada but is rather rare in the United States. In the past... in the United States... the appy program has been focused on achieving the spots which required certain genetic combinations, but unfortunately... not always best known for outstanding fleece qualities. What is so special about Spots from an appaloosa breeder program perspective is that he carries elite-fleeced heavy hitter lines in his pedigree such as Legacy, El Nino, and XXXtreme (out of Hemingway) ALONG WITH the expressed appy gene! These elite-fleeced alpacas are known for their lasting-fineness and density. Not only does Spots sport a sweet, easy-to-handle disposition... his fleece is exactly what you would expect from such a stellar pedigree. He is dense and fine and FULL of crimp! Expect lasting fineness from this guy-- his sire, Sai-Hoji, was 21 micron at 11 years old! Spots dam is a beautiful Snowmass XXXtreme daughter. Spots' first offspring arrived 10/17/18... a beautiful appaloosa male. Looks just like daddy... with even more spots! The dam, Faith, is a vicuna brown non-appaloosa gene carrier... so dad is responsible for the patterning. Way to go Spots! Skin Biopsy Results by Norm Evans: Density 69.75 follicles SQ MM, glandular presence 4 of 4, Avg. SP 12.7 to 1. Micron variation 11.3 with an AFD of 20.68. UPDATE / June 2019: Spot's now has 3 offspring on the ground. Two are classic appaloosa and one is a reverse appaloosa. All are exquisite in their own way and we couldn't be more pleased with this fabulous progeny beginning.

HuacayaFemaleWhite
AOA# DOB: 10/10/200515 yrs
After a bit of a difficult labor, Eternity graced us with this lovely young lady. From the minute she hit the ground, we knew she was something special. Pink is what we call a talker. Just touch her and she'll tell you about it. She is very people friendly and loves to talk with the visitors. Her genetics are a book of Who's Who. She's also graced us with the finest fiber to date on the farm - an amazing 16.7! We have been happy with every cria she's produced. She is one of our best foundations girls. But for the first time, we are offering her for sale. She's done great things for our breeding program, she could do it for yours as well. June 2015 ~ Pink just had a beautiful coppery m...

HuacayaHerdsire (Male)True Black
ARI# AOA# 32188998   DOB: 11/6/201010 yrs
Sadly, we lost Warrior in a dog attack at our farm in 2019. When we decided to add a black herdsire to our lineup, we knew that Black Warrior was the boy we wanted. He is the full package, beautiful typey head, fleece that rivals light color fleece and genetics that are spectacular and new to our herd. We hope to be able to continue on with our friend Alan's plan for this fine young male. We are truly impressed with his lack of guard hair and density in his true black fleece. We are looking forward to putting some color into our herd. Histogram for Black Warrior: 1st Year: 19.1/22.2/1.7 2nd Year: 20.7/19.7/2.1 Spring 2015 ~ Warrior's first 2 cria are on the ground!

We were blown away by this little girl's bundled fleece. She has retained her beautiful fleece in her second year and has shown well at her only 2 shows. Very outgoing personality and loves to talk to you. She's a do anything alpaca. Winning reds, blues and all colors in obstacles, showmanship and even costume. With the lines behind this girl we expect she will become an excellent foundation female. We bred her to Velasco de Alta Vista. We think this male was a perfect match for this lovely girl. ** Pia delivered a gorgeous LF male out of Velasco early in October 2015! ** Pia's second cria was a delightful multi out of the award winning sire Hobby Horse of a Different Color ** ...

Painted Spring's Eden

Throwing dark and gray crias every time!

Painted Spring's Eden

HuacayaFemaleLight Fawn
AOA# DOB: 10/16/201010 yrs
Eden was the first light fawn girl born on our farm, a mere 7 years after we started breeding alpacas. One of my favorite colors, she is absolutely beautiful and feminine. Fleece as soft and buttery as possible and out of 2 champions. She has been shown very lightly and placed at the shows she'd attended. Eden's first cria in the summer of 2014 was a stunning dark brown. She has been bred to our multi time gray champion Alpine's Carderock. The combination of these 2 fine fleeced animals should be amazing! Update - We are extremely pleased with the results - the Truest of Black female Cria Eden has proven herself as an excellent producer of dark animals - and nice ones at that....

HuacayaHerdsire (Male)Medium Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 35042945   DOB: 8/7/20173 yrs
I saw TK at MAPACA in 2019 right before he won the Reserve Championship at the Jubilee. After losing one of my Herdsires in a dog attack just weeks before, TK seemed to be the perfect replacement. After he won - well, it was a no brainer! His sire FTAF's Blackbeard was chosen as the 2019 Futurity Herdsire for the Small Farm Division. He's produced so many champions. What I loved about TK was uniformity of color in his fleece - he's virtually spotless. His staple length was long with nice character. I got him home and was hoping that he'd be ready to breed by the fall and he was. We have several girls bred to him for fall Cria and a few more were bred this spring as well. If y...

Hayley was up and running within minutes of birth. She's been strong, straight and proud ever since. She is the first cria out of our Black Warrior and she has guaranteed his frequent use in the future. She quite possibly has the nicest fleece we've ever seen on the farm. She is a definite show prospect for us in 2016. Oct 18 Update: Hayley just gave birth to a lovely dark brown boy out of Carderock. This first time mom is really rockin it. Unassisted birth and great mothering skills. That's all you can hope for!...

Lakota was a great find when I was looking for potential matches for our outstanding 2x National Fleece Champion Carderock. Lakota's mother is a TB and at just about a year, Lakota was already tipping the scale at about 110#. Gray over Black - she has such interesting coloration. I just love the frosting she has and the dark belly. 6/17 - Lakota delivered a gorgeous rose gray girl for us! She's full of milk and a great mom! Just love this little one! 10/18 - Lakota has been exposed to our TB herdsire Warrior. He's producing some really nice babies. We think this will be a great match. 10/19 - This breeding produced another stunning silver gray girl. ...

This little girl was born late in the day to a first time mom. Mom really was puzzled what all the fuss was about and really didn't think she should be responsible for this tiny thing in the pen with her. We were leaving for a large weekend show and knew that the baby would have to be bottle fed. Thanks to the dedicated help from our great friends Mickie & Terry and their kids, Hope finally allowed Diamond to nurse from her. Diamond grew up nicely and has been a good mom to Xena. ...

Just back from the 2016 AOA National show in Washington DC and September's spin-off entry took first place! In a 2 and older class, his fleece was his 6 yo fleece! Fiber stats for 2016 will be coming soon! Mention his spin-off win and get a $750 breeding! 2015 Fiber Stats now in! This is the type of fleece we are striving for. At 69 MONTHS, September is sporting a 20.2 micron fleece with a 98% comfort factor. We had the amazing opportunity to purchase this awesome boy in a retirement sale from a local farm.

Once and done, Petra came home pregnant and had a completely problem free pregnancy - and delivery. We knew this one would be white, or would have been surprised if he wasn't! What surprised us on the day we tipped him was the huge extra folds of skin on his neck and shoulder area. This boy is going to be DENSE! He is built like a little Sherman Tank. Standing shorter than the other crias born at the same time, this guy has at least 20 or more pounds on them! He stands solid as a rock. Each time his Juvie fleece was shown ...

This girl gets her tall beauty from her mother. All the animals that she has produced have had the most exquisite soft buttery fleece and Shirl is no different. Even the fiber that came off her neck on her Juvie shearing was absolutely amazing. I can't wait to work with it! Shirl is well grown for her age and should be able to be bred by the time she is 1 1/2 or 2. I have no doubt that she will reproduce herself and be an excellent production animal. 7/19 - Just sorted Shirl's fleece and it is definitely show worthy.

Wow - Do I ever love the look of this boy. He has amazing bone and a great conformation. His fleece is coming in dense and crimpy. I was just sad that he wasn't old enough to show at the fall shows. He is bigger than crias born a month or more before him so I expect he should grow to a nice size. His second shearing produced a mass of inky black fiber that has an exceptional hand and incredible fineness. He should be in someone's breeding program!
