Huacaya Alpacas

Our beautiful alpacas are security guards for our free range chickens. They are excellent at keeping predators at bay!

These alpacas are the huacaya variety, the type best known for their super cute ‘teddy bear’ looks – a result of its fleece having a tight crimp which makes its hair stand out vertically from its skin.

As you can see, they are very cuddly-looking indeed!

Our animals are very important to us at Wackley Brook. Without them, there would be no smallholding business, so we do everything we can to treat them with the care and respect they deserve.

We like to view our animals as partners in what we do. Working with them every day, we inevitably form strong bonds with each and every one of them, and their individual personalities and quirks help to make Wackley Brook what it is.

Alpaca shearing done.... they’re back to work looking after our chickens #alpacasofinstagram #alpacas
