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.

Better weather.

A much better week for the boys this week, only snow flurries and none of it lying anywhere.  This is Fergus (left) and Faro.
Fyta, looking intently at the hedge as he suspects there is a cat or even our neighbour's dog on the other side.
This is Fergus looking suitably fleeced up against the biting, cold wind which has blown for most of the week, from the East.
Taken today, this is is Faro charging across the paddock as the human approaches with the carrots.  The other boys are close behind!
But once the carrots are finished, they are no longer interested in the human and return to grazing in the sun.
And finally......................... there is nothing quite like a variety of heathers to give some colour throughout the winter months.  They are good value.
