PBR Apache's Spirit in the Sky is precisely the female her name details from a long line of distinguished championship alpacas. A stunningly gorgeous female physically with a spirit to match brings a lot to a breeding program. The ability to combine Apache Gentlemen, Windspun WSA Patriotic Gentlemen, and Candlelight's Cookies and Cream to Polaris is outrageous. If high-quality appaloosa/harlequins are part of your breeding program, you cannot afford to miss out on this beauty. Who knows what lurks under that dark fleece? Maybe spots? April 2, 2021, her first shearing conveyed the truth with a small white heart-shaped mark on her underside, confirming that she should follow in her sire's steps!!!!
PBR Apache's Spirit in the Sky's sire, Apache Gentlemen's pedigree, is packed (on both sides) with outstanding appaloosas and harlequins. His sire, Windspun WSA Patriotic Gentleman, is an appaloosa as well. He's a blue ribbon-winning male with beautiful fleece and strong conformation. Patriotic Gentleman's sire is the multi-champion Hobby Horse Farm Great Expectations, making the well-known SA Peruvian Black Epic grandsire. Apache's dam, Excelsior's High Voltage Tazer, has an equally impressive background. She's the harlequin daughter of two well-known appaloosas - NWA/Hearsum Paulo and Cookies and Cream.
Bright Water Ranch's Espresso, Spirit's dam, was a lovely Bay Black female. She was the daughter of VF Yahoo Too and BMR Sienna, daughter of Polaris, a very successful male in the alpaca industry. Espresso had a beautiful bright fleece with nice crimp and displayed a decent phenotype. Her bloodlines included recognizable names such as Peruvian Hemingway, Polaris, Peruvian Felix and Snowmass Snowmaster's Shiraz and she, herself, was in the top 25% for crimp. She proved that she could produce the ever-so-rare Calico Harlequin/Appaloosa in her first offspring, Rare Gem Whole Latte Love and her second, PBR Apache's Spirit in the Sky.
PBR Divine World's Bellagio (Our choice for Spirit's 2022 maiden breeding)- Males of this caliber are rare, especially when such superior genetics for fleece production is packaged in a phenotype this outstanding. This Snowmass Divine Love, grandson, will improve anyone's breeding program, including ours. Superior fineness, micron-adjusted uniformity (17.4 afd!), extreme brightness, bundling beyond belief and blanket extension is why he took Champion at the 2020 AOA National Show and Champion at the 2021 Paoba Fleece Show. What an incredible accomplishment before the age of two!!!! Those aren't his only accomplishments, either! He settled his first girl at only 15 months old, and now with a little more experience, he has four in the bun and one on the ground, PBR Divine Lola Rose! (Check out her page!)! This guy is beyond belief!
