Meet our herd
As our herd has grown the individual personalities have shone through and family traits are very evident. For example, Willow and her six daughters (she’s only ever produced girls for us) are last for everything, food, bed, the dust bath and even the toilet queue – yes alpacas wait their turn for everything.
Whilst you can never have favourites there are a number of special members of the Barnacre herd who will stay forever, like Hughie (Hughie Barnacre on Facebook), who was born slightly prematurely and needed help from Debbie for the first few days of his life and now thinks he needs to protect Debbie, or little Nelson, one of our black alpacas who even at the age of 10 looks like the average six month old and is a firm favourite with our visitors.
Knowing all of our alpacas by name and their individual personality traits, it means we are able to match alpacas to peoples specific needs. So if you can’t see something suitable on our sales page please get in contact and we can probably help or know where we can source something suitable.
