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.

More sunny days this week.

Fyta boy, giving that inquisitive and inquiring look so typical of alpacas.  His right eye has given no further problems since he sustained a cut to his upper eye lid a couple of weeks ago.
Photographed with this three pals spread out behind him, Fyta takes to the water tray which he loves and frequently visits.
Fergus behind and Fyta in front.
Fergus, now in front and Fyta have been joined by their pal Faro who likes to keep an eye on what the photographer is up to!
Fergus (left) and Fidget, our two white boys with the the Gunnera bush just over the fence and now at it's highest point.
Still keeping an eye on the photographer!  Faro in the top paddock, tail up, ears back, whilst the human is in the lower paddock!
And finally.........................this Lily is making a real statement in amongst all the other flowers!
