The alpacas supporting Fox Trail Winter Running Series

We were so pleased to support the Fox Trail Scotland, Winter Running series for their Nocturnal Ultra event.

Berty at the Borders Wedding Show

Look how much fun Berty had at the Borders Wedding Show recently! It was a cold day and the coffee flask broke en-route, but it didn’t stop Berty having a blast as you can see! He’s got a warm fleece and he’s not much of a coffee drinker anyway 🤣🦙❤️ We attended the show as we are […]

Glasshouse Wedding!

We were asked by bride to be Juliette, if the alpacas would make a special appearance at the Glasshouse in Edinburgh, to surprise her wedding guests. This would involve them going up in a lift to the lawned deck on the roof of the Playhouse! We weren’t too sure if the alpacas would refuse to […]
