We welcomed our herd of six gorgeous alpacas in March 2020. The lads have settled well into their pad and we can already see their individual personalities shining through! Without further ado, let us introduce you to the Arran Alpacas!!
Dougal turns three years old this summer and his name was chosen as it means 'dark stranger' in Scots. He is a strong, confident boy who likes the idea of being the head honcho of the herd.
When Dougal thinks food is on offer he comes over to sniff your hand. He had a little trim of his hair to help him see and was quite calm during his beauty treatment.
Clyde will also turn three years old this summer and is a rich chestnut brown. He was named as he is strong like a Clydesdale horse. And he travelled over the Firth of Clyde by ferry to arrive here.
To begin with Clyde was a little timid but now he knows we come with food, he is becoming more confident and is rising through the ranks! His fibre is lovely and dense.
Gordie (aka Flash Gordon) was the first alpaca we named because he has a flash of white down his rear left leg. He is the larger of our two eighteen month old boys and closer in height to the three year olds.
Gordie is most definitely the hummer of the group. Humming is a typical alpaca noise. He is quite quiet but very sweet and is very good buddies with Clyde.
This beautiful little 18 month old boy was named through our facebook competition. He is shy but definitely likes to wind up the rest of his brothers if he gets the chance. He enjoys his trekking but prefers to stick at the back of the herd when out and about.
Glen is the wee baby (Cria) of our herd. He is very inquisitive, friendly and rather cheeky chap is always the first one to greet you when you walk into the barn. And the first one in for feeding at night-time.
Glen is a great hit with all the kids, he is very calm whilst out trekking (he loves getting a wee pat on the head and is very happy to have a little cuddle as well).
Come and book an Alpaca experience here and meet them for yourself!
