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.

Still sweating!

Fergus amongst the buttercups!  It's been another very hot week with a heavy shower of rain yesterday afternoon - the first rain for weeks.
It's been some years since we've experienced prolonged periods of sunshine in this part of the world, so we're appreciating it.  Fergus (left), Faro and Fyta are pictured here.

In the next paddock is Fidget, enjoying the sand pit as always. All the boys enjoy lying in the sand during very hot weather.
Find one - and you'll find the other!  Faro (right) and his pal Fyta.  We're pleased that Faro is eating much better these days and he is looking much better for it.  They have had their Verm-X granules in their food this week.
Fyta (left), Faro and Fergus posing in front of the 'homestead' which is looking trim as all the grass was cut this week.
And finally............ this 'Rodgersia' plant is growing  very well in the garden and since this photo was taken, the leaes have changed colour to a deep bronze.
