Welcome to NZ Summerhill Alpacas - Specialising in Leopard Appaloosa's and Elite Grey Alpacas

Our Alpaca Farm is located in North Canterbury in New Zealand. It has spectacular 360 degree views from the Alps to the Ocean.

We are very passionate about 'Spotty' alpacas - in particular the Leopard Appaloosa. We have the largest herd of Leopard Appaloosa genetics in the world. We are now standing at stud 11 different male genetics and 26 different female genetics.

We fell in love with a "spotty" female, Miss Hokey Pokey in 2008. We really didn't know what she was in terms of colour until we investigated further from overseas alpaca breeders. In 2009 the same dam and sire produced another leopard appaloosa female, which we also purchased.

Our Spot Gene

The Spot Gene has lived on with these Leopard girls being mated to one of our Leopard Appaloosa Stud Males Montage.

Our Stud Male Montage has produced 17 spotty cria from 23 matings. We now have double gene Leopards with both parents being Leopard Appaloosa’s. Montage has produced Leopard Appaloosa cria with numerous solid coloured females which is very exciting for our breeding program.

We have numerous Leopard Appaloosa stud males from different genetic lines, which we will do selective matings to our 25 Leopard Appaloosa & Appaloosa females to hopefully produce lots of spots.

Our Goal is to bring the Leopard Appaloosa & Appaloosa Alpacas to the forefront of the alpaca industry in New Zealand, as they are 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
