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.

Not exactly summer weather!

I think Fergus is looking forward to being sheared next weekend! Mind you, with the cold weather we've had over the past few days, the boys are probably better off with their coats still on!
Faro (left) and Fyta enjoying grazing amongst all the wild flowers.  The boys have all been on their Verm-X granules this week, mixed with their feed.
Fergus (left), Faro and Fyta with Fyta in the long grass which he likes.
Feed time and the boys all scramble downhill and across the paddocks to get fed.
We've had a couple of decent, sunny days during the past week and when that happens, the boys hit the ground with Fyta and Fergus in the sand-pit.
It's the daily poop-patrol and Fyta and Fergus check out what the human is up to with his barrow and scoops!
And finally.................Delphiniums amongst the other flowers and grasses.  A lovely splash of colour.
