First - you have to thank Red Granite for delivering such an outstanding male
Second - you have to thank Kitt Hollister for selling you her herd. And including this outstanding male.
And if I could reduce the lack of hesitation in making that purchase - I could in fact reduce it to this one male.
I will let Kitt explain because she has a knack for it.
From Kitt:
"The best way to introduce this male is using the facts. First: YES, he is a true Harlequin. His great grandsire, Black Epic, is one of the most prolific Harlequin Appaloosa producers out there. His spots are subtle as his coloring is very light, a most stunning lavender rose grey. They are there, however, and there is no question that his extraordinary coloration is the result of the Harlequin Appaloosa gene.

Next, there is the not small matter of his biopsy. At 127.2 follicles/square mm density, Pintus is the densest alpaca yet biopsied by Ian Watt in the USA, and I have not yet heard of a denser alpaca out there. With a primary SD of 2.5, secondary SD of 2.2, and fiber population differential of 3.5, he is also one of the most uniform. To quote Ian Watt directly, "overall this is the best alpaca I have tested in the US."

So, there's that.

Is he fine? Well, of course he's fine. His yearling histogram, at 16.0 AFD and 3.1 SD, is fine. His two year old histogram, at 17.3 AFD and still a 3.1 SD, is fine. His 2019 AFD, calculated off of his biopsy, is 16.9. That's fine. So, he's fine, and he's staying fine, which is to be expected. Why? Well, his sire, CCNF Legionnaire, has a 6 y/o AFD of 17.3 with an SD of 3.5, and his dam's 5 y/o histogram was 20.5 with an SD of 3.5 -- impressive for any color, but stunning for a TRUE BLACK.

So, here we go: unbelievably dense, uniform, and fine. As the pictures show, this fleece is, as expected, also quite beautiful -- bright bright bright, with a high-frequency crimp that stamps it as truly elite. He also has a decent staple.

Is he good looking? Well, duh. He's a grandson of Snowmass Matrix Majesty. Check out that head shot! The coverage is ALL there, and his substance of bone is excellent."

Alas. 6 Man of Mystery kids hit the ground within 5 days of arrival last Sept. 2021. One was actually delivered the morning of transport which was super fun. LOL
All are outstanding, 3 are especially noteworthy. Two are harlequins. One is an absolute Game Changer. So we named him.. Game Changer. Nifty.
Be on the lookout. This guy is restricted but his kids are not... Much much more to come.
