Periwinkle is a great foundation dam. Before joining the Rare Gem line up, Periwinkle was a grey program foundation dam. She threw 3 out of 3 grey offspring when bred to grey. Suspecting that she may be a "blank", she was added to the Rare Gem harlequin / appaloosa team. Sure enough, she has thrown 2 out of 2 harlequin / appaloosas for us when bred to harlequin appaloosa herdsire, Cashmere's U-Taupe-ia. The first boy was a handsome beige with spots on his belly and legs that greyed out down his neck and topline. He has joined Sleepy Acre Farms stud row as a future stud for their harlequin / appaloosa program. Periwinkle's second Rare Gem offspring is the stunning Heart Kandi. She is the most uniquely color / patterned appaloosa to date. Her blanket is a solid dark fawn and she has black spots on her legs, belly and chin. She is a big strong cria and very loveable.

Periwinkle is a stellar breeding dam... never a problem getting pregnant, holds her pregnancies, delivers large 20lb plus babies, has tons of milk and is the most attentive of moms.

Periwinkle’s sire is none other than Bisturi, the legendary grey herdsire. Bisturi is a stunning grey male with a gorgeous evenly colored fleece. He has a fabulous pedigree that yields itself to producing not only grey, but quality fleece in general.


- 2012 Periwinkle had a handsome grey male from Silverado’s Peruvian Silver Fox.
- 2013 Periwinkle had a gorgeous light silver grey girl, Epic Alpacas Athena, from multiple award winner
Chief Grey Feather (#31825610).
- 2014 Periwinkle did it again! This time, a beautiful dark silver grey girl out of Avatar’s Avalance,
- 2016 Periwinkle continues to throw exactly was asked for. This year is a beautiful big-boned, densely-
fleeced boy with gorgeous crimp harlequin appaloosa. He took two Blue Ribbons in his first show.
Sold! This pairing will be repeated for a 2018 offspring!
-2018 And AGAIN! Periwinkle produced a very unique, appaloosa girl. We have named her Heart Kandi as
she is the sweetest cria ever. :-)

Congratulations to Plateau Breeze on the purchase of Periwinkle and her 2018 cria, Heart Kandi for their appaloosa foundation!
