Our original 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.


Just a reminder that clicking on (most) of the photos will show them greatly enlarged.

Christmas greetings to our dear reader!!

The boys send their festive greetings to all blog pals.
Couldn't resist sending this shot of Wee Eck sorting out his bit of swede! 
And finally (just before Rudolph appears) .............this was taken at 8.10am on Tuesday.  Note the full moon still in the sky.  Every morning this week has been the same, bitterly cold with the moon still glowing.     'Outa here - have a great Christmas.  Later,  'gators!
