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.

Getting into summer

Feed time again and the boys, three of them anyway, come to the gate.  Fidget is the straggler who is a little way behind the others.
Fyta's fringe - thick, long and crinkly.
Fidget's fringe - thick, long and even crinklier!  A few too many buttercups in this paddock I think.
Faro with Fidget behind.  The boys have been on Verm-X granules all this week with today being their last dose for this month.
Quite a bit of rain this week, so whilst the humans take shelter inside the field shelter, the boys stand at the door looking in!
These Iris flowers still maintain a bit of colour although they've been soaked and blown about by weather in the last week.
And finally..............Friday morning and Cupcake has been up all night with the humans watching the election results - and it shows!
