Why are alpacas becoming so popular as pets?
They are naturally curious and surprisingly smart
They require less care than most other livestock. Shearing once a year and some routine preventative care, very little else is needed.
Their soft padded feet will have minimum impact on your land.
Alpacas seem to really enjoy children, and children seem to really enjoy working with them.
They are very efficient land managers.
Alpacas can be trained. Not in the same way as a dog, but they will walk well on a lead, hand feed and in some cases, come when called.
The annual fleece can be hand or machine spun into a very high quality yarn.
Are there any catches to pet alpacas?
You cannot have just one alpaca. Their herd instinct means that they need at least two companion alpacas.
It is a long term commitment as Alpacas can live for over 20 years.
