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.

Camera's on the blink!

Wouldn't you just believe it - a perfect day for photos, the boys were ready to pose, then the camera started to play up!   Thought we'd get some shots with snow on the hills behind the boys who look very much at home in this environment.    Unfortunately all the shots taken, especially with the lens, ended up blurred.  This is Fyta.
Next up is Faro and such a pity that the photo is blurred, it would have been a lovely photo of him.    He's never very happy to pose for close up shots but he can suffer the photographer being at a distance!
No mistaking big Fidget, enjoying the lovely weather and the fact that Robbie was wearing his shorts for the first time this season.  Is that a laugh or a grimace on his face as he sees the boss's white leggies?!  
And finally............before the camera gave up completely, the boys have been waiting patiently all week to get onto new grass and today they got their reward when we moved them to the bottom paddocks.  Have a good week.
