Rare Gem Heart Kandi's color is so fresh; bright, shiny brown. The color of caramel; a gooey honey-like liquid with a deep appearance. It consists of shades varying from bay black to dark-brown. Rare Gem Heart Kandi is a uniquely color/patterned Appaloosa. Her blanket is a solid dark fawn and she has dark spots on her legs, belly and chin. She's a stunning girl.

Heart Kandi has an excellent pedigree as her sire is the ever popular Vintage Cashmere U-taupe-ia of Rare Gem Alpacas. Taupie is a striking appaloosa harlequin male that is on a roll for throwing spotted and harlequin offspring. He now has ~30 offspring on the ground and ~80 percent are either appaloosa or harlequin! While dam selection has a significant influence on such outcomes, it should be noted that the majority of the dams Taupie has been bred to have no genetic influence on this outcome. So for those that don't have existing foundation girls with appy / harlequin lineage-- Taupie has proven to be capable of passing along his appy genetics and produce desired results. His heritage boasts appaloosa genetics on both sides of his lineage with Aussie Rockford out of Hannahruh on his sire's side and Chiquita Import on his dam's side.

Bisturi's Periwinkle, her dam, is a great foundation dam. Before joining the Rare Gem line up and then coming to PBR, Bisturi's Periwinkle was a grey program foundation dam. She threw 3 out of 3 grey offspring when bred to grey. Suspecting that she may be a "blank", she was added to the Rare Gem harlequin/appaloosa team. Sure enough, she has thrown 2 out of 2 harlequin/appaloosas for them when bred to harlequin appaloosa herdsire, Cashmere's U-Taupe-ia. Bisturi's Periwinkle’s sire moved to Austria in 2013 and at 12 years, has a fabulous, uniformly gray-colored fleece. He has an impressive pedigree. Of over 100 offspring, 55 gray, 25 black animals have been inherited. Bisturi is a fabulous stallion with innumerable victories on which he has proven his uniqueness. He has now proved his qualities with his foals until 2017, all foals are Silver Gray, Rose Gray or Black - a great success!
