I am pleased to announce a new addition to the Rare Gem herd-- Silent Legend daughter-- Summer Shandy. Shandy's dam and maternal sister are already members of the herd, and I am so happy to be able to have Shandy reunited with her mum.

Summer Shandy is another "box-checker" and we anticipate her being a perfect fit for the Rare Gem breeding program. In September 2021, Shandy's dam threw an elite-fleeced appaloosa male out of this same sire. Let's see what daughter does?! Shandy has been bred to harlequin appaloosa, Apache Gentleman for an early January 2023 offspring.

Shandy is a multi blue ribbon winner and the daughter of Snowmass Silent Legend-- co-owned by Alpaca Palace and Stawchowski Alpacas. Silent Legend is a 9X champion and son to the one and only Snowmass Elite Legend, Herdsire of the Year 3 years running, and certainly one of the most extreme fleeced Quechua Son's to grace the United States breeding herds. Silent Legend brings in the elements of color to the Elite Legend genetics lines via his Dam, Snowmass Silent Whisper. Silent Whisper has a glorious color lineage with a strong Maternal Black lineage which includes Snowmass Nova and 6Peruvian Silent Night. Her Maternal genetics also include Accoyo Legacy and Chaccu, as well as Accoyo Victor. The blend has brought forth a soft light Fawn with exquisite fineness and density. Silent Legend is well proven with 83 registered offspring. His owner, Renee Ritenour writes... Silent Legend is the type of male you can put over any color as you know he will pull the color and add an overriding influence of the most elite fiber traits.

What an exciting add to pair with appaloosa and harlequins!
