Freckled Bliss of PBR is dappled with many hues of fawn freckles, some light; some dark that have been kissed with honey on her bright white fleece. The Irish call freckles “briciní”, which translates to “little stars”–a perfect description which brings to mind the quote “A fleece without freckles is like a night without stars.” She has a fine, elite fleece with high frequency, high-amplitude crimp, great staple length and a flawless phenotype. She would be a wonderful to purchase to show and/or place into your elite-fleeced appaloosa breeding program.

Freckled Bliss of PBR is blessed with her beautiful beauty marks due to her ever popular sire, Vintage Cashmere U-taupe-ia, who has been on a roll for producing Harlequin/Appaloosa offspring. He hit the jack-pot when Freckled Bliss of PBR was born. 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.

Freckled Bliss of PBR's dam, Luzie Luna of Bright Water, is quite impressive herself. From her lineage comes names such as Peruvian Hemingway, a heavy hitter in crimp, Pperuvian Felix, a big name for fiber diameter, Snowmass /Cchatanca , another crimpy alpaca. He actually is in the top 1% for fiber diameter, standard deviation, percentage of fiber and spin fineness!! She presents with many qualities from her heritage.
