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.

Clicking!!

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

White stuff's gone, green stuff re-appears!

The snow has all gone this week so the boys are pleased to have more green stuff around to nibble.  The nights have been frosty but the days have been lovely and sunny.  From the left, Faro, Fyta, Fergus and Fidget waiting for the humans to arrive mid afternoon with the feed.
These guys don't need watches to tell the time, they just seem to know when the grub will be dished up!
Fergus, photogenic as always, stands watching the human trying to work out of there may be just one more morsel of food available!
And finally.............mid afternoon, long shadows as the sun sinks and Fyta has a drink after his feed.  Only a few photos this week as we both recover from bouts of this nasty cold which has been doing the rounds across the country.
