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.

Mixed weather again.

The boys have endured a mixture of weather this week - gale force winds, hot sunshine and pouring rain.  Fidget is taking advantage of the nice weather to chew the cud.

This is the extended picture showing Fidget sitting apart from his three mates as usual, but all of them were enjoying the sun.
We had a lovely visit earlier in the week from Wendy at Woodleigh Lodge Alpacas on the Black Isle near Inverness.  Fergus as always was getting stroked but the other three boys are not into all that molly-coddling!  Wendy's husband Paul was not visiting as he had to work - well somebody has to earn the alpaca feed eh?  Lovely to see you again Wendy.
He's here again, Fidget with Faro in the background, thinking that the camera may be made of an edible material!
The lovely-boy Fyta, taking it easy in the sun and helping himself to mouthfuls of hay whilst listening to the humans chattering!
And finally................the only remaining Hollyhock and it's a lovely pink colour.  The boys are in their shelter in the distance.
