Fliss and I have made the huge heart-breaking decision to sell off our entire Leopard, Grey and Black Alpacas.

All our leopard alpacas are for sale on the pages with ‘Rock Bottom” prices so we can sell them quickly and they can go to their new homes.

Our original intention was to have The BEST LEOPARD HERD in New Zealand and undoubtedly we achieved that, so now it is time for our gorgeous leopard alpacas to integrate into other breeders herds.

Please ask any questions about any alpaca you are interested in as it has been a huge job getting the photos and information for the website.

With kind regards Shirley & Fliss Grant

Our Spot Gene

Our passion for top quality alpacas, started with breeding Leopard Appaloosa's. We have now discovered through endless research The Spot Gene, enabling precise genetics to be used and perfectly layered to create magnificent leopard appaloosa alpacas.

We are very fortunate to have one of the only homozygous leopard males in the world, NZ Summerhill Leopard Prince, who has created a foundation layer of our spotty breeding programme alongside, his father Ambersun Montage.

At NZ Summerhill Alpacas we have numerous Leopard Appaloosa and Appaloosa stud males from different genetic lines. Having a large selection of top genetics enables us to do selective matings to our Leopard Appaloosa & Appaloosa females in order to create more wonderful masterpieces, with fantastic fleece attributes.

Our Goal is to bring top quality Leopard Appaloosa & Appaloosa Alpacas to the forefront of the alpaca industry in New Zealand, as well as promoting Leopard Appaloosa's internationally.

"Making a good decision was easy and very enjoyable.
After the sale Shirley kept me informed about the condition of the alpaca`s and even during theire quarantain she visiste the alpaca`s weekly and send my photo`s. So now I have on my farm, two (very healthy) Leopard Appaloosa females (both pregnant) and a very stunning stud to be! 

Thank you Shirley for this fantastic experience! Great regards and hug!" - Anita Huls

"It was very easy to work with Shirley. Really fast responses, detailed photos and good service till the alpaca left quarantine. They really care about their alpacas.

As it is always a risk to buy alpacas just by photos we were even happier when we saw NZ Black Magic Whittaker the first time. He looks like he did on the photos and the fleece was even better than we expected. "  - Marcel Benz

"Our purchase of NZ Black Magic Zhar ET was so easy with Shirley organising delivery while we were still there. Zhar has proved to be everything Shirley described and we loved dealing with Shirley and will be back in future to NZ Black Magic to look for future sires for his progeny. " - Jessie Haanan
