It is with great excitement that we introduce this handsome harlequin appaloosa son of Vintage Cashmere U-Taupe-ia and elite-fleeced, Running Late's Peaches and Cream.

Peaches was purchased in 2019 for her outstanding fiber traits, beautiful phenotype, pedigree and patterned fleece. She does not carry an appaloosa or harlequin in her pedigree, but is an expressed pattern so she was included in the appy/harley program as a potential for throwing just what we want. In 2019, she was paired with harlequin appaloosa, Apache Gentleman. The two produced a lovely classic female appaloosa that was exported to Switzerland in early 2021-- Rare Gem Night Owl.

In late 2020, Peaches was paired with harlequin male, Vintage Cashmere U-Taupe-ia "Taupie" and produced this handsome harlequin male, Rare Gem Camouflage! Born 11/15/21-- this handsome offspring is a fleece monster with presence galore. He was born on a 90 degree day and took a half day to fully dry.

Sire, Taupie, was recently sold. Thank you Taupie for gifting us with such a gorgeous gem just prior to your departure! Camouflage is one for the serious appaloosa / harlequin breeder(s) to keep an eye on.

UPDATE: Camo is a natural with the ladies. He has settled his first females and we have four confirmed pregnancies for 2024 offspring from this young male. We are excited to see what he will throw for us.
