Bisturi is a stunning gray male with a gorgeous evenly colored fleece. He has a fabulous pedigree that yields itself to producing not only gray, but quality fleece in general. An added benefit to Bisturi is that he is unrelated to any of the currently popular gray genetics out there. Reserve your breeding today to this fabulous gray male!

On 5/14/2007, Poppy presented us with VANGOGH SUN FLOWER, a gorgeous true black female sired by
UA Inkspot. This impressive black herdsire is a son of the award winning Yankee Doodle Dandy (DF) and grandson of Cisco Kid (grey). At 7 years of age, Inkspot held the amazing fineness at 21.4 microns.

On 9/8/2008, Poppy had GEORGIA O'KEEFE OF COUNTRY ESTATES, a lovely true black female sired by our Patagonia’s Darwin. “Darwin” is out of one of the top producing silver grey male...

Handsome Appaloosa Harlequin Stud!

Apache Gentlemen

Huacaya, Male, Unproven, Dark Fawn, Medium Silver Grey
ARI# 35240655 | DOB: 6/28/2015
Oh, my oh my! Look what just got added to the Rare Gem herdsire row line up! If you are looking for an appaloosa harlequin stud to cover your girls, 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 breedin...

Bidding Info


There’s a reason why the Incas worshiped vicuñ. The doe-eyed creatures, which inhabit the chilly Andean plateaus, produce a fleece so fine that it is considered to be cloth of gold. Only Inca royalty was permitted to wear it.

Periwinkle is a perfect example of Vicuna patterning and is a great foundation dam and a stellar breeder..never a problem getting pregnant, holds her pregnancies, delivers large 20lb plus babies, has tons of milk and is the most attentive of moms. She threw 2 out of 2 harlequin/appaloosas when bred to harlequin appaloosa herdsire, Cashmere's U-Taupe-ia.

Periwinkle’s sire is none other than Bisturi, the legendary grey herdsire. Bisturi moved to Austria in 2013 and at 12 years, has a fabulous, uniformly gray-colored fleece. He has an impressive pedigree. Of over 100 offspring, 55 gray, 25 black animals have been inherited. Bisturi is a fabulous stallion with innumerable victories on which he has proven his uniqueness. He has now proved his qualities with his foals until 2017, all foals are Silver Gray, Rose Gray or Black - a great success!

Periwinkle's 10/2018 breeding to Apache Gentleman should be exciting. With his pedigree packed (on both sides) with outstanding appaloosas and harlequins it is highly probable that Apache is homologous with a good chance of producing appaloosa harlequin offspring. His sire, Windspun WSA Patriotic Gentleman, is an appaloosa as well. He's a blue ribbon winning male sporting a beautiful fleece and strong confirmation. Apache's dam is the harlequin daughter of two very well-known appaloosas-NWA/Hearsum Paulo and Cookies and Cream.

As you can tell, we are very excited about the 2018 breeding between these two and can't wait to see their 2019 offspring.
