ARI# 35195405 | DOB: 7/1/2014
"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 ...

Description

Bella is something incredible exquisite! You will hear terms like modern silver grey, harlequin, platinum grey-- well roll them all into one and that is Bella. This coloration in incredibly rare, one of the absolute rarest alpacas colors out there. Bella is a solid platinum silver harlequin and her name, Bella Gris, meaning "beautiful grey" could not be more appropriate.

Bella began life as a light fawn cria and by two years of age, she was completely grey-- except for her top-knot and leg fringe. She is completely spotless and the most beautiful light silver grey. While harlequins are not too common-- the solid, platinum variety such as this-- well, there may be a handful, at most, in the United States.

So sometimes we find these special colored alpacas and then some other aspect falls short for a breeding program. Well, not with Bella. She has a very desirable build and beautiful fleece with nice crimp and lock structure. Before starting her production career, Bella had a nice run in the show ring-- 2X banner winner and 6 blue and red ribbons in just 7 shows. And for those of you wondering, she was shown in the grey class :-)

Before joining the Rare Gem herd, Bella produced 3 lovely cria. Two females and one male-- all grey-- one harlequin grey!

Working on selection of the perfect service sire for Bella's next breeding?!
