OUR SMALL HERD

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.

Clicking!!

Just a reminder that clicking on (most) of the photos will show them greatly enlarged.

Late summer sunshine.

The 'dynamic duo' - Fyta (left) and Faro on the hunt for carrots or tit-bits from the human.
A long way behind is Fergus who can be seen in the background, still limping badly but getting around. Faro is alert - tail and ears up!
Fergus makes it to the carrots and soon finishes them off.  The boys have been on their Verm-X granules with their feed this week, the last doze was today so they will be pleased not to have any more until next month!
We've had a couple of nice days this week (for a change!) so whilst the humans are busy in the garden and cutting grass, the boys take it easy in the sunshine.
Fergus again - another day and another handful of carrot slices!
Cheeky boy - Fyta, always wanting to get his nose into the camera lens and pose for a photo!
And finally.........A view down on the boys in their paddocks from a different angle.  Faro is easily seen walking up hill, Fyta is behind a small pine in the middle and Fergus is at the bottom left, in front of the Gunnera plant.
