Dainty Opelousa Lady of PBR is the gorgeous daughter of the king of the alpacas, Vintage Cashmere U-Taupe-ia, a stud whose genetics run consistently with passing on his harlequin and appaloosa gene. Lady is simply gorgeous with a lovely dense fleece which exhibits a high-frequency, high-amplitude crimp style and she exhibits light colored spots throughout her blanket. She has a true-to-alpaca phenotype, so typical of Taupie's offspring. Her dam, Our Shiloh's Pearl, is equally impressive, and she is the daughter of Derwydd Inti-Taqna who has produced other outstanding offspring.

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.Taupie's biopsy (September, 2016) results are in! Density: 53.6 mm; Secondary: Primary fiber ratio: 9.7:1; In-skin mean primary fiber diameter: 25.3 microns / SD 4 microns; In-skin mean secondary fiber diameter: 21.1 microns SD 3.8. Bioposy sample was extracted by Ian Watt personally. He has a super long staple length (in the top 6% EPD 2016), with high frequency, medium amplitude crimp.

Her dam, Our Shiloh's Pearl, has a impressive pedigree with names like Peruvian Snowmaster, Pperuvian Felix, Derwydd inti-Taqne and Peruvian Hemingway. With that said, her afd, sf, mc, are all in the top 15%. Our Shiloh's Pearl retains her fineness even at five years old at 22 microns!!
