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.

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

Just lying about.

Faro looks every inch the guard as he checks out the photographer.  His three pals are close by but Faro sometimes keeps himself a little distant.
And here he is, keeping an eye on his three pals who are lying about enjoying their haylage.  Faro does not eat lying down as the others do - but he does enjoy haylage!
Fergus (left), Fyta and Fidget - relaxed and enjoying the moment knowing that Faro is looking out for them.
Fidget - bless!
Faro and his three chums.  They have had a good week of weather, dry with a cold wind and they like that.
One of two old ploughs we have near the paddocks.  Time to get 'himself' to put another coat of metal paint on it for this season I think.
And finally..............a host of golden daffodils maybe?  Lovely colours anyway and great to see them in bloom.
