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.

Happy Easter.

Fergus is always 'up' for having his photo taken, just to show off - perhaps he knows that he's a good looking boy!
Faro between the paddocks suspecting that it's food time as the humans are approaching with a basket of goodies!
We just missed a great photo opportunity when Fyta picked up his bowl and threw it.  He does this with his bowl and with the hay baskets - rascal that he is!
And when feeding is over, the boys just walk away.  They have very little interest in hanging about with humans, if there is no food they walk away!
Plenty of lying around in the sand pit this week in the mild temperatures.  This long range shot shows Fyta lying down in the pit, standing in and Faro lying a short distance away.
And finally.........we still have plenty of daffodils around, some have passed now but the later varieties are only just coming into flower.  Have a very happy Easter wherever you may be reading this.
