My love for spots, and my spectacular spotty Alpacas
This page is dedicated to my Appaloosa Alpacas
This page has alot of photos to load, so does take some time, but if you have any interest with spots! its worth the wait!
Leopard (below) is my main man here at Painted Pines, Id love to have a whole herd of Leopards! Pictured here before an after shearing. Although he has no spots at all on his face, he is almost giraffe like in body pattern.
Leopards appaloosa cria are all pictured below, his other cria are on his stud male page.
I decided that seeing you cannot tell on the AAA registrar which alpacas are infact appaloosas, just that they are white/fawn etc, I will be adding Spotai' etc, something similar like spots! after my prefix and before the crias name, so it will be easier to keep track of who has spots!
Painted Pines Spotai' Fandango, his mum Finlay( pics lower on this page) Is a dark fawn and white Suri.
Fandango has spotty ears, spots on his legs, on the backs of legs,
and some on face, neck and body. Pic here age 4 months, his spots are still there just harder to see from a distance. And here are some pics of his fleece close up.
his saddle spots, and his neck spots.
Now shorn Fandango is certainly a cutie! His fleece is growing back nicely, but his spots dont stand out very well, pic age 16 months.

Tayos daughter Thumbelina, also Leopards Granddaughter.

with a silver coloured face, she has orange/red hairs in her fringe, also coloured spots on her face, and thru her fleece, which is mostly a smokey colour.
on the shearing table you can see some belly spots,
with some fleece regrowth you can see some spots on her belly area,
and in full fleece

pics just after shearing,
and below with some growth
Lady spice, below is is a true appaloosa suri, in that she is riddled with spots! And underneath, covering her udder, inside legs etc, she has very pink skin and its covered in black spots, she has spots all thru her fleece also, she suffers from a skin condition so rarely has hair growth on her nose and ears, sadly it makes her look abit ugly. So I have not taken a close up of her face, she does have a brown nose, spotted ears and around her eyes.
and below shorn,
She is mother to Incan spice below,
Incan spice, is a Multi, but she also has appaloosa markings, she has spots on her face, and rump area,
in full fleece,
and her rump just after being shorn
actually she almost looks multi on the one side, and appaloosa on the other, but most of the colour on her appy side, is tiny flecks, only seen at shearing.
Ryder is very Handsome, has dark spots on his nose, med fawn spots on the rest of his face, and has a couple of bigger spots on his back legs, and after he was shorn he showed spots on his belly, and upper legs shoulder area. He has changed colour since birth, was born a fawn, and is now going a smokey mushroom colour at the skin.
Finlay is a multi, but she has a couple of cute spots on her face, and colours on the bottom of her legs, so I added her in here too, and the fact she is mother to my first Leopard cria, and he is spotty also!
Jaffa and Jazzmyn

Kestrel (deseased) is a Huacaya, she is half multi and half appaloosa!

her son Captain Jack Sparrow (sold)( below), has quite a few tiny spots, on his neck, back, and legs, only really seen at shearing, but has some spots on his face, ears and feet that you can see in full fleece, but not enough to class him as appy, so he is a flecked multi,
just after shearing, you can see some flecks
with some fleece only couple of visable spots on his back,
and his feet, face and ears.
Lolita has alot of light brown/dark fawn spots thru her fleece, which will be alot more noticable after shearing!
