The Boys

Our friendly Alpacas

All of our boys are friendly and happy to meet people. They love their carrots and enjoy going for walks.  You can feed them by hand and even gently stroke them on the neck. If you are extra lucky you may even get a nosey nosey kiss. They all have different personalities so below is some pictures and a short description of them.  Alpacas are prey animals so although we have trained our boys to feel comfortable around visitors there are still some important rules to abide by when amongst them.  See our terms and conditions page.

Aubree

The Adorable

Aubree is one of the smallest of our boys and the one that everyone falls in love with when he flutters his eye lashes at them. He is light/medium brown colour and is one for the ladies. He has a gentle nature and is a great walker with younger children.

Benjen

Feed Bowl Cleaner

Benjen is an off white colour with tan coloured backs of his ears. He always has a roll in the shelter after meals and takes great care to ensure the bowls are clean! He often gets caught being mischievous finding and eating the hidden carrots.

Sir Davos

The lookout

Davos is always on alert. He is the biggest of our boys but most elegant too. He keeps his head high and has great composition. He is a lovely white colour with a short face. He keeps his distance but loves a cuddle from time to time.

Sir Marsden

Carrot Gobbler

Marsden will be the first to the gate for feeding time and is always on the lookout for someone who might bring him carrots. He is a bright white colour and his fleece gets extra thick and deep.  He is often at the front of the herd when walking and likes to think he is the boss of the others. He is a very friendly 'paca and is always pulling funny expressions. He is soft and gentle with children.

Sunset Sky

Human Welfare

Sunset is one of the friendliest alpacas we have but also quite lively and always on the move. Like Marsden he loves carrots and feeding time for both the food and the attention.  He is medium grey coloured and so soft and fluffy.  Once he has settled to you he will definitely let you have a cuddle.  He is inquisitive about younger children and once you get used to his lively nature he soon settles and helps you feel comfortable and relaxed around the rest of the herd.

Erik

Banana ears

Erik is a lovely natured alpaca. His soft fine fleece and cute little face is enough for anyone to fall in love with him. He has small banana shaped ears that need moisturising in the hot weather.

He knows his name well and comes running when we call him. Erik will often give you a kiss if you lean towards him. He earned his name from the tv series 'Banana Man.'

Merlin

The Pooper

Merlin is a dark brown colour, but when you part his fleece he is actually black.  He has a white patch on his nose and a white beard which is why we named him Merlin. His best friend is Erik and they love playing together in the fields. Merlin ‘The Pooper” likes to poop everywhere rather than on the midden! He is very friendly and loves his carrots but he likes them cut smaller. He always comes running when we call him.

Dandelion

Little Mouse

Dandelion is such a lovely boy, he is medium fawn colour with white markings on his face. He has a short nose that twitches like a mouse. He loves playing in the paddling pool on hot days and often puts his head through the fence to eat the grass on the other side. He loves playing in the field with Burdock and Blackberry but sometimes hangs out with Uncle Sir Davos.

Burdock

Blue Eyes

Burdock is such a gentle loving boy, he is dark brown with white markings on his face and a white fringe. He has blue eyes that sparkle in the light and a soft loving nose which he is always giving nosey nosey kisses with. He loves playing in the field with Dandelion and Blackberry and also likes wrestling with Erik.

Blackberry

Piglet

Blackberry is such a gentle loving boy, he is a black colour, has a cute face with feathered ears and a short nose. He loves playing in the fields with Dandelion and Burdock and likes to be up at the front for feeding time. Sometimes he makes pig noises as he loves his food. He is the youngest of all our first 10 boys

Hawthorne

Date of Birth: 12th June 2021

Hawthorne has a very cute face and is a really handsome boy. He is a medium tan/brown colour and is soft and gentle in nature just like his friend Battenburg. When you see him you will be hypnotised by his big puppy-dog eyes. Although he loves his friends he also likes to spend time on his own.

Battenburg

Batman

Battenburg aka Batman is a gentle friendly alpaca. He is very confident and will happily feed out of your of your hand. Sometimes you will see him up at the fence on his hind legs. He is medium/dark brown colour and has a small white parch on his hip. He is very clever and enjoys our enrichment feeder wheel, his cute nose spins it very well to get the food. Although he is a very clever alpaca he still goes to the toilet in the wrong place?!

Vaudeville

Date of Birth: 10th May 2021

Vaudeville is a lovely gentle boy in nature who can be a little shy at times. You will often see his tail curled upwards showing you he is being submissive. Although he is endearingly awkward, he will let you stroke him on his neck if you're very gentle. He also loves his treats and is happy too be fed by hand. He is true black in colour but during the summer months he turns a little brownish. You will often find him playing in the fields close to Saladin.

Saladin

Mini Merlin

Saladin is a friendly, gentle boy but can be very playful at times. He is quite protective over his siblings and will often try to block us during routine husbandry. Saladin has a very special bond with Vaudeville and you will often find them very close together. He is true black in colour with a white patch on his chin, hence (Mini Merlin). If you look into his eyes they tell a story about his boisterous side that sometimes makes an appearance . Saladin was named afetr a famous Sultan who won many battles around 1100's. He made a truce with Richard the Lionheart in late 1192 which ended in the third crusade.

Levi

Date of Birth: 24th July 2021

Levi is a very special boy, he is a friendly alpaca who will spend lots of time with you. He is a bright white colour and has a genetic alteration which causes deafness and bright blue eyes. Although he cannot hear you he understands hand signals and likes routine. He does get a little jumpy at times as some of the other boys (usually Saladin) sneak up behind him and startle him. He certainly lets them know he is annoyed afterwards by blowing air at them. When herding them from paddocks we have to make sure he can see what we are doing so he doesn't get left behind. When you feel levi's fleece it is the softest fleece youwould ever have felt. This is also due to his genetics and is common for white alpacas with blue eyes. He loves to roll and play so he is always covered in bits!
