Alpacas!

Hi there :o)  I thought I would involve you all in a conversation that we've been having in our house for a few weeks now....it revolves around the topic of those adorable fluffy animals - Alpacas. 

When we move to our new place 'in the bush', I would love to fulfil a dream that I've had since school - to have a herd of alpacas. My hubby isn't so keen ;o)  He doesn't want the responsibility.

I just don't know how he can resist this adorable face!


I've been researching these cute darlings and they seem like they are quite an easy animal to have on a property.

So my question to you all - does anyone who reads my blog keep alpacas? I would love to hear from you if you do! How much care to they really require? Please help me make my case so I can adopt some of these adorable animals into my family.

Have a great day!
Hugs x

  3. Hi Kylie,

    They are adorable! That fuzzy little face it just too cute!!! He actually looks a bit like a Dr. Seuss character :-) I've always dreamed of having a farm full of animals too. Best of luck to you. I hope you get your way!

  4. Well, that face is darn cute but I do not have the room for alpacas but I have a friend who keeps them (here in Derbyshire, UK). If you wish I could always ask her or even better - get her e-mail address if you want. I know she has them cut in May.

    Hugs, Mette

  8. Hey there, my in-laws have tons of llamas and one little alpaca! They seem very easy to take card of, especially if you have lots of property. Their problem is they have only 5 acres for 20 or so animals, so they're always buying hay for the winter and sometimes even the summer. This is in Canada, though. They are very cute, and loooooove kids! Good luck with whatever you decide!

  9. Unfortunately I am not one of the lucky ones to be able to keep alpacas but I can certainly see why you would want to. Look at his wee face. I think the only way to persuade your hubby is to print out that photo and stick it everywhere! Im talking about when he opens the fridge theres the alpacas....in the knife draw, the snack cupboard, on the tv remote, in the bathroom, on the tv, in his slippers, in the pocket of his favourite jumper.....I would have that adorable wee face everywhere and when he thinks he has found every photo and is heading to bed for an alpaca free sleep....he'd pull back the covers and theres another photo. And for good measure, when he snuggles his head down into his pillow and he hears the crinkle of paper....yip, you guessed it....alpaca photo under his pillow, heehee. I have a very twisted sense of humour but it does work....we have a beautiful cat that according to my hubby we would never have. LOL. Lee xx

  13. I want to keep Alpacas too after meeting some when treking in Peru. We are hoping to move in a couple of years to Wales and buy a house with some land for chickens and Alpacas :). My research tells me not to buy a male, except gelding - and if you want to breed then take your female to stud. Also try and buy a female with a baby female, you need a minimum of 3 Alpacas. I am sure you already know all this. Hope you manage to talk hubbie round

    Had to laugh at CraftyLoops' comment :)
    I don't know much about alpacas but I've heard they prefer company so you need a couple at least ;) Good luck with whatever you decide.
