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.

Get up - it's morning!

We've said it before - these guys don't like getting up in the mornings!  They love their shelters and like to stay in them or near them longer in the mornings.  Look at Fyta having a yawn!
Fergus is winding himself up to get going with his foot in the air but Fyta prefers a long-lie.

Watch out - here comes the boss to keep an eye on the photographer.  Note the hay buckets are empty and getting thrown about!
At long last they are on the move and the human can get in and sort out their shelter and replenish hay.  Fergus leads the way, then Fyta, Fidget is last as always.
Fyta boy taking a close look at the camera with Faro looking remarkably like ET in the background!
And finally...........we paid a visit to a friend on the Black Isle today and just look at the size of her Sunflowers - never seen any as tall before!
