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.

What's cooking?

Lots of rain and sleet this week so the boys appear to have been permanently wet.  Fyta (left), Faro and Fergus come to the fence as the human must have some goodies to eat!
Faro usually leads the charge to the fence to see whats cooking, always followed by Fergus and now it's Fyta who lags behind.
Fergus gets the goodies - carrots and apple, so he's now a happy bunny! It's taken him a couple of weeks to get over the fact that Fidget has gone and he's now the only white boy.
Fyta - another happy bunny munching his carrot and apples!  As he gets older his black 'trousers' are starting to go grey.
And finally........... there has also been a little light snow around this week.  This is the view over the spare field shelter and away to the west.
