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.

Just another week

Fyta (front) and Faro have just enjoyed their daily feed, Fergus and Fidget  are still eating, and the humans are still around!
Fergus has finished his feed and is clearly happy with life as he enjoys having his back scratched.  He is not always so accommodating!
Lots of windy, rainy weather this week and this shot shows the boys lying down avoiding the wind.  It also shows Fidget (right) keeping his own company, as he often does.
Last week I mentioned Fyta's cut above his right eye.  That appears to have healed up well and thankfully caused him no real problems.  He is back to 'dunking' his feet in the water tray.
Fergus never misses an opportunity to take a handful of hay.  It doesn't matter if he's been eating hay a lot, offer him some hay and he will always take it!
And finally.............a mixture of summer flowers including Lily, Verbascum, Sun flowers, Gladioli, Sweet Williams and Liatris
