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.

Just a normal week.

Fergus, looking like the bonnie boy that he is!  Look at the length of his eye lashes on the left of the picture.  He looks remarkably dry after the amount of rain we've had this week.
Faro - the boss - looking relaxed but definitely interested to know what the photographer is up to, and not too keen about the camera!
When the Grumpy Gardener goes into the field shelter with a barrow, the boys know that something is happening!  In fact they were being moved to another shelter which causes them to go 'ballistic', rolling about and having plenty of fun.  Unfortunately I'm unable to upload the photo I took of all this hilarity!
However, the boys never lose that sense of being alert to any dangers - in this case they are watching three horses in the adjoining field galloping around their paddocks, so no threat.
And finally............taken this morning at carrot feeding time.  Fyta can't wait to get at his favourite tit-bits, but Fergus looks a bit disgruntled!
