Most appaloosa herds are built. Well...unless you have about $100,000+ to go out and buy one. Even then, there aren't alot of them for sale out there. To start building one, pick out one or two and start breeding/building. Wait, this is starting to sound like a blog post.

So much to say about this guy.

Confetti is a rare line of appaloosa. I *think* he is his own line of appaloosa. I believe he inherited the gene from his dam. And he is not doing bad for a 'pop-up' appaloosa. They all had to start somewhere, right? And he is producing right at 50% for passing on those spotty genes. When he produces spots, boy does he produce spots! We have had him for 4 years now, before we got him he produced 3 solid crias from 3 solid dams and 2 spotted ones from one solid dam and one appy dam. Enchanted Hill Icon and Enchanted Hill Appy-Go-Lucky, respectively. When Confetti hits the target, he hits it out of the ballpark!

On our farm, we have retained every cria he has sired. We are a small farm so the numbers are not large, but that adds to the fact that he retains a rare bloodline that can be used on every appaloosa farm out there. We have 4 female cria. Two daddy look a likes out of a black dam, one classic appaloosa out of a classic dam, and one white out of a white dam. This fall his first cria for us, Bijou, had an appaloosa female cria that is utterly gorgeous, Black Opal.

Confetti is a compact male, full Peruvian, with good bone. He is excellent on lead. I can go out into the pasture and halter him, tie him to a post and trim his toenails by myself.

His genetics are over 60% of my female herd now and I need to diversify my bloodlines a little. I do not have a genetic tree going, its more like a stick but its a very nice stick. :)

Oh! and he can produce elite fleeced alpacas. His cria out of Chiquita last year, Rita, just tested at 14.7 micron for her cria fleece!

Interested in raising appaloosas? Confetti can put you in that direction.

Confetti likes apples. Confetti likes cucumbers. And Confetti really likes that his pasture is next to the garden.
