Wowza!! What can we say.... from the moment Deb Hill of Cloud Dancer alpacas showed me a photo of Bolero pronking across a field at her place, I told her that I HAD to have this boy. This was way back in 2005 when appaloosas werent such a cool 'thing'. I tried to tell her he was a spotted reject in a world that desired nice solid blankets.... it didnt work. She knew he was a superstar. She took Bolero to shows and he won ribbons. But that wasnt the amazing part - it was the crowds that gathered wherever he went. The same thing probaby happens when Brad Pitt walks into a store.... Bolero (AKA 'Bo') is a star!

I was able to purchase Bolero as a yearling. We've had a great time playing the breeding odds game and have made quite a few appaloosa offspring. For us, this was a complished by breeding Bolero to vicunia patterned females. Two of his Harlequin Appy offspring are still on the ranch here. Son 'Cappi' literally shears a purple shaded fleece. Its very unique. They test higher in micron fineness, but they are top of the charts for excellent fleece weights and fiber Staple Length. Bolero's EPD ranking for Staple length is in the TOP 2%, Fleeceweight TOP 15% of the database. We have seen first hand the trait heritability he passes with regards to fiber Staple Length... it is consistant and remains throught the years. That is excellent for your fiber processing requirements. We have made a few runs of just our Appy yarn and it spins up beautifully.

Bolero's 'special' DNA comes from his sire Aussie Colorado Dillinger (a son of the famous Hannaruh, who generously blessed us with these Appy genes!)

Bolero is conformationally correct, from head to toes. He is a compact male with a charming personality. He is a good breeder and always settled females easily. Bolero has never had any health issues. Ever. We have not bred for Appaloosas the last few years, as we focused our efforts on our white herd. Additionally, we really just don't have the fawn females needed for an appy program and we cant breed him to his daughter, so we're 'stuck'. Realizing the appaloosa interest is alive and strong out there and we'd like someone to utilize Bolero in an Appy program. His price is posted reflecting his age - but dont let this low price fool you, he is well worth every dollar (we paid much more) and he will surely produce Appys when bred appropriately for appy.

WE WILL BE ATTENDING NATIONALS IN DENVER IN MARCH, AND CAN BRING BOLERO FOR PICKUP IN DENVER IF ANY BUYER WISHES TO PICK HIM UP THERE.
