We have several "mini-'herds" of 3-4 males who get along well and tend to be absolute sweethearts with people. Remember that only the top 5%-10% of males get to breed--their job is to "improve" the next generation. The remainder of males go on to lives of "Pet Males" or "Fiber Males" (for fiber artists) or "Expensive Lawn Ornaments". These males may be outstanding--some of our boys are champions and many have 1st and second place ribbons in competative shows. They simply don't "make the grade" as herdsires, but if they were females they would sell for a pretty price.

Our "mini-herds" consist of huacayas and suris--we try to make up groups with both. These boys will give you years of wonderful fiber and happy, serene companionship.

Our primary concern is for the well-being of these boys--we really are fond of them. We insist that buyers agree to annual shearing, and that the alpacas are protected by good, 5-foot fencing that dogs can't get under (Domestic dogs are by far the biggest threat to alpacas in the US). You must also be able to provide adequate shade and cooling measures in the summer months.

Prices are negotiable for good homes.
