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 8 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.

Fidget and the feline

If he's in the mood for it, Faro will stand for a neck or chin rub.  This was on a lovely evening earlier this week when we went to sort out their hay buckets and water troughs.  Fidget is in the background.
Eagle eyed as always, Fidget spots something moving in the garden.  Faro is unconcerned at this stage.
Fyta is in a nearby field shelter and sees that Fidget has gone on 'alert' and is now charging towards the fence line!
Aha..............'Cupcake' our resident boarder and owned by a neighbour had chosen to follow us to the paddocks.  Fidget seems to have other ideas about allowing cats into his paddock!
Cupcake appears more relaxed now knowing that the big white fella can't get at him through the fence!  Shortly after this he wandered off leaving Fidget still looking over the fence at him.  Faro is just out of shot having arrived to check out the feline threat.
And where was Fergus when all this excitement was going on?  Chilling out with his hay bucket as usual!
And finally................. these are Inula plants, over 6 feet in height with lots of orange coloured flowers, looking a bit like mini-sunflowers.
