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.

Muddy boys

Yesterday was a day of continual rain which didn't bother the boys too much, but they have a habit of having a good roll when wet - this is Fergus who was obviously rolling, head first!
The photo is not really showing how dirty Fyta actually is - lots of dirt hidden by his dark trousers.
Faro as usual didn't want to stand and be photographed, but he is also covered in mud.
Fidget is certainly not bothered about his looks - so if his pals all have a roll in the dust, he'll just join them!
Their present field shelter is the preferred area for rolling at present - top right corner is a favourite spot.
And finally.................another week, another 1000 piece jigsaw which 'Cupcake' likes very much.   He's sure he can spot some of his relations in it!  A good New year to all blog readers - best wishes for 2017.
