Enchanted Hill Appalucy

Huacaya Open (Female) Light Fawn, Dark Fawn

AOA# 31197588 DOB: 5/14/200815 yrs
Appalucy is the appaloosa color/pattern that we love, so she is really not for sale at all. Born to two of our favorites, Lucy has the calm personality that both her parents show. She also has their square conformation and terrific fleece. We hope she'll live a long life here on our farm and pass those terrific genes on to several similarly marked offspring, all of which have her calm and sweet disposition. Bred to Bodacious, Appalucy's first cria is due in May 2012 If you like the l ...

Genotype: Ee Aa

LuTau is a striking appaloosa male that has a good chance of being homozygous for the appaloosa gene, so you "serious" appaloosa breeders need to check this guy out! LuTau's fleece has incredible crimp, structure, and staple. If you are breeding for appaloosas, or are even considering breeding for this unusual pattern, LuTau is not one to miss!

His fleece is one to behold - great architecture in the long staple, with blinding brightness and consistency. And check out his histogram from a sample submitted of both light and dark fibers; AFD 17.6, SD 3.6, Curvature 64.3. That SD of 3.6 is fantastic when considering the sample was both his light and dark fawn colors!

LuTau is the first cria from Vintage Cashmere's U-Taupe-Ia, a male with the appaloosa gene on both sides of the family (Hannaruh and Chiquita). LuTau's dam is the amazingly-patterned appaloosa, Enchanted Hill Appalucy, who also has the appaloosa gene on both sides of the family (Maria's Angel, LTD Treasure, and Xus). That's FIVE different appaloosa genes coming together in this male!

In 2016, he stormed through his show career, , never taking anything lower than a blue ribbon! On April 9, 2016, LuTua took the blue in walking fleece and the blue in halter at the California Classic, and on October 23, 2016 received another blue ribbon at the Alpaca Breeders Invitational in Oregon! In April 2017, LuTau finished his show career with yet another blue ribbon at the California Classic
