Meet the newest addition to the Rare Gem Herdsire Row-- Snowmass Sizlin Legacy! This boy is an exciting find out of the Snowmass herd. While Snowmass did not breed appaloosas, they kept detailed breeding program notes which included specific lines that threw spots and the frequency of those spotted results. Sizlin is out of an import within the Snowmass herd that threw the highest number of spotted offspring-- to a rate of 6.5X the others in their herd. Do we have a new gene carrier to add to the list of the appaloosa breeders?!?!

In addition to having a beautiful phenotype, this boys has a buttery handle that opens up to well-defined spots of white, fawn, dark brown... and even grey! His fleece is extremely fine, dense and uniform.

This young male will start his breeding career in the Fall of 2022 and will be in as many shows as we can get him to before then. Sizlin's show debut was October 20-21, 2021 at the double show NEAOBA Alpaca Fall Spectacular and Empire Alpaca Extravaganza in Syracuse, New York. He color checked and was confirmed by the ring judges as "definitely" appaloosa. Unfortunately, he was the only one in both of his classes so he took a first out of one... The good news is that both judges had very positive comments as to his fiber quality, eye-catching conformation and calm, pleasant demeanor. Hopefully in the upcoming shows there will be more competition for this elite-fleeced appaloosa male.


Snowmass Sizlin Legacy XX is co-owned by Little Creek Farm, Diamond Valley Alpacas and Rare Gem Alpacas.
