Alpacas have been a large part of our lives for about 15 years. We first saw them at the Royal Agricultural Show (one of the last ones). Our daughter fell in love with them and we arranged to visit Fine Alpacas with a view to buying some. Maxine & Peter were great fun and we chose 4 lovely girls. They arrived in September and we’ve never looked back.
When you have animals, you are always busy. They need food, water, hay and cleaning most days. Some animals take longer than others to care for each day. Our donkeys, Donny and Darcie are so playful it takes much longer to sort them each day as they can often be seen pulling the hay net from our hands. Pulling the pooh picker backwards and generally being naughty. At present we have:- Pygmy goats, Angora goats, Pigs, Chickens, Donkeys, and Alpacas.
