OUR SMALL HERD
Our four boys came from Ardo Alpacas in Aberdeenshire. We are not alpaca breeders and have our boys purely as pets. Our experience is that you don't need to be a breeder and that a 'batchelor herd' can give much pleasure to the owner. We have 5 acres including our big garden and grazing for the boys, 15 miles north of Inverness, Scotland. I spin, knit, felt and crochet with the fleece from the boys.

'FYTA' Born: 15th July 2006
Another of our initial four boys, Fyta was quite reserved at first but over the past two years has developed into a lovely personality. His father is Gotit and is mother is Pie in Ardo of Edenbrook. He is a white boy with black trousers ('fancy.') Since Gotit left recently, we think Fyta will take over the leadership of the herd - reluctantly!
