Proven Harlequin Producer

Forget Me Not

Huacaya Open (Female) Light Fawn

AOA# 35058991 DOB: 9/11/20149 yrs
Forget Me Not joined the Rare Gem Herd in September 2018. She exhibits all the qualities that we look for... fineness, density, fleece character, disposition... oh... I won't bore you with our long list! We love her and are very excited to see what she can do in our program. Forget Me Not was bred to the wildly spotted appaloosa harlequin, Apache Gentleman. This pairing brings a nice fusion of sought after appaloosa genetics (Forget Me Not also carries Peruvian Platinum on her father’s side) ...

Snowmass Sizlin Legacy XX

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) White, Beige, Light Fawn, Medium Fawn, Dark Fawn, Light Brown

AOA# 35538684 DOB: 7/26/20203 yrs
Meet the newest addition to the Rare Gem herd-- Snowmass Sizlin Legacy XX! 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 descends from an import within the Snowmass herd that threw the highest number of spotted offspring-- to a rate of 6.5X that of the others in their herd. Do we have a new gene carrier to ad ...

Ask a question

Polka-hontis' sire, Apache, has a pedigree packed 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 breeding for spots.

Polka-hontis' dam, Forget Me Not, is the daughter of 8X champion sire, Derwydd Luciano's Totora. Totora is a producer of champions and known to throw color when bred to color! Dam also carries Peruvian Platinum in her pedigree for those tracking harlequin/appaloosa genetics and has superb fiber traits including being ranked in the top 1% EPD for %M.

UPDATE: November 2022 Polka-hontis gave birth to a tiny, but strong and healthy female harlequin appaloosa sired by champion FTAF's Privateer. Polka-hontis is a great first time mom with ample milk and natural maternal instincts. We have named her adorable lil daughter, Rare Gem Suki. Suki was born 336 days gestation and has gained ~ a half pound per day her first three weeks. She is strong and confident and the other cria can't keep up with her. She has lovely harlequin coloration and personality galore.
