Here at NZ Summerhill, we are very passionate about 'Spotty Alpacas' in particular the Leopard Appaloosa. We are proud to have the largest Leopard Appaloosa gene pool in the world. Currently we have standing at stud ** different Leopard Appaloosa male genetics and ** different Leopard Appaloosa female genetics. After years of trial and error, we have now discovered the hidden secret behind creating these magnificent looking alpacas. Alongside our passion for spotty alpacas, we also strive to produce elite grey alpacas and the blackest of blacks
- NZ Black Magic Alpacas.
Our aim, is to bring Leopard Appaloosa and Appaloosa Alpacas to the forefront of the alpaca industry in New Zealand, as they are internationally.
We first fell in love with a 'spotty' female, Miss Hokey Pokey in 2008. We initially didn't know what she was in colour terms, until we investigated further from overseas alpaca breeders. In 2009, the same dam and sire produced another leopard appaloosa female, which quickly became apart of our growing herd. We named her, 'Cookies 'n' Cream'. Both of these fabulous girls, have since produced amazing cria, who one now lives internationally and the other is our personal stud male for producing fabulous patterned leopard appaloosa's.
