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.

Lovely weather again!

Faro (left) and Fyta taken earlier in the week with snow covered Ben Wyvis to the north, behind them.
Looking in a different direction, the same two boys but looking West to the Strathglass hills.
Faro, Fyta and Fergus enjoying some sunshine - and some carrots.  The boys have been having Verm-X granules in their feed this week, so carrots will be a bit of a relief!
Now who could resist Fergus's face looking up at you as if to say, "C'mon boss, gimme a carrot please!"
OK pal, here's some carrot for you.  Fergus is always on the look-out for anything edible!
Although there has been a thin layer of ice on the water troughs every day this week, some of the days have been really warm and sunny.  Fyta (left) and Fergus have a snooze in the sun.
And finally..............it's Bluebell time again with clusters of them all around the ranch.  Nice to see them back in bloom.
