UPDATE: Congratulations to Molly Q. & Scott Bohannon on being the winning bid at the 2022 Gold Country Gathering Herdsire Auction (Rare Gem X-Man breeding).

Is your goal to produce elite-fleeced appaloosas with fiber highly sought after by hand-spinners?! Here is a boy for your consideration. This is one handsome well-grown appaloosa young herdsire. His fleece is carrying the desired traits we like to see AND in the appaloosa expression! X-Man's appaloosa genetics come from his sire... Rare Gem XXXtreme Spots and can be followed back to the original US carrier- NGG Lional.

X-Man carries elite-fleeced heavy hitters in his pedigree such as Legacy, El Nino, and Snowmass XXXtreme. These elite-fleeced alpacas are known for their lasting-fineness and density. Accoyo America Sai-Hoji was 21 micron at 11 years of age!

Not only does X-Man 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! He has a tight primary to secondary ratio with an AFD of 20, SD 3.7 and Fibers Greater than 30=0.6%. Expect lasting fineness from this guy!

And please don't miss the Judge's comments from CABA 2019 by clicking on the attached video link.

Update: X-Man's first four cria have arrived and more are on the way! All 6 cria, to date, are out of solid colored, non-appaloosa / harlequin dams. Resulting cria... one male the color of the dam (dark fawn) and two gorgeous harlequin females and two WILDly spotted appaloosas. X-Man himself is not "wildly" expressed, so we are super excited to see that he is throwing offspring with increased and even darker spots than his own.

Please check the Rare Gem Breeding Chart tab if interested in purchasing a female bred to this handsome appaloosa herdsire.
