Meet the alpacas

Let me introduce you to Cassius, the first alpaca born on the farm early in the summer of 2011.He hadn't read the book that states alpacas are born during the day so I found him wandering around the paddock with his mother very early one morning. Here he is sitting next to his mother Gemma. She never liked him to be too near.

He has grown into a big fluffy boy and is best pals with Claudius and a certain large spotty llama..

If you look very closely you will be able to spot his father in the background - Nataniel

Cassius was soon followed by Claudius, who decided to make an entrance into the world on a very wet cold June morning. After wearing everyones coats as well as his own he slowly warmed up and has been my best buddy ever since. Definitely on the ' never to be sold ' list.

 

Claudius and Melosa

 

 Here he is with proud mother Melosa.

The final two boys of 2013. The one on the left is my smallest cria yet, so was given a name to aspire to, welcome to Hercules. His new best friend, a mere six days older is Augustus.
