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.

New week - new Keder!

Faro - captivated by our neighbour's cat!  The boys are all very wary of cats - must be the way they move and makes them look like a potential predator.
A mixed week of weather, some days beautiful whilst others were cold and wet.  This was taken first thing in the morning, with the sun just rising and the drizzle falling.  The boys are lying down near the field shelter, enjoying their breakfast hay, lower middle of the picture.
Our friend Sue came north from deepest Wiltshire to visit last weekend.  Fergus, front is trying to impress the ladies by being macho and chasing away Fyta who might be stealing the carrots.
In reality, he's a big softy and will put up with large amounts of petting and cuddling when he's in the right frame of mind!
From the left Faro, Fergus, Fyta and Fidget enjoying the sun but also having to put up with a strong breeze blowing.
And finally...............the Grumpy Gardener is a happy chappie because he finished all the ground preparation in the veg garden on Thursday and the new Keder greenhouse arrived and was erected by the fitters on Friday.  He's still got some work to do around it for drainage but I'm looking forward already to some juicy tomatoes!
