Caramel D.O.B 8th June 2014
Caramel is a real beauty! Daughter to Eclipse and Kilimanjaro she was born here on the farm. She is the prettiest female (but don't tell the others!). She is a Huacaya alpaca. Caramel is painted on our lovely bone china mugs, available to buy in our shop. Caramel's first born cria, Faith only lived for 9 days. We are hopefull that Caramel will have another cria at some point as she is desperate to be a mum!
Dolly - D.O.B 4th June 2015
Dolly was orphaned by her mum ,Eclipse, when she was 10 days old. She took to the bottle well and many of our visitors had the pleasure of bottle feeding her. She made a lovely clicking sound when she was hungry and charged towards us when she saw the bottle. A real sweetheart and the star of Jo's book "And ... are alpacas REALLY scary?! Dolly is now a mum herself and has produced Gromit and Hugo
Dot - D.O.B 1st July 2015
Dot was born by c/section on the hottest day of the year! Her mummy hasn't ever had anything to do with her sadly so Dot joined Dolly as a bottlefed baby and they have become best friends. She is quite small and very very cute. Everyone just loves her! Dot is also a star in Jo's book "And ... are alpacas REALLY scary?!
Delilah - D.O.B 29th May 2015
Delilah was born here at Abbotts View Farm in 2015, daughter to Wynne of Bozedown and Livanti Hermes. She gave birth to her first cria, Freckle, in 2017 and is a very good mum. She has a very pretty face and is quite a tall girl, happy to feed from your hand. She is a lovely herd member and an excellent mum.
Arum - D.O.B 13th September 2006
Arum is one of our walker boys and anyone who has come for a walk will have seen him. Often referred to as a Martin Clunes lookalike he is a big boy, but a very gentle one. He is one of our older boys and the most experienced at walking. A gentle giant! And definitely the grandad of the herd. What he says goes! Arum is our favourite to take to Care Homes because of his delightful temperament
Limelight - D.O.B 4th September 2011
Limelight is a real character! One of the walkers he is very amusing to walk. Sometimes he will just lie down for a bit. Or wander off in the other direction to the rest of the group. It may have something to do with the fact that he can hardly see! His fleece grows completely over his eyes and has to be trimmed regularly. Best friends with Jensen and brother to Casper and Barney.
Lapwing - D.O.B 5th September 2011
Lapwing is definitely a favourite with visitors who have walked him. He is a really trustworthy safe alpaca and one of our favourites too. He loves to come out for a walk and looks after even the most timid of visitors.
Darcy - D.O.B 24th June 2015
Darcy is daughter to Lucinda and Kilimanjaro. She has always been really interested in everything, and explores everything with her mouth, just like a toddler. She was fascinated when Dolly and Dot were bottlefed and used to come and suck a finger just so she wasn't left out. She will still pick up everything just to see how it feels. Darcy is delightful! Darcy is mum to Gemma
Barney - D.O.B 6th June 2013
Barney is another favourite here on the farm and with visitors. He is the one who had the "poodle" cut in 2014 and also the one that James has taught to do tricks! He is brother to Limelight and Casper and one of our walker boys. He has a lovely soft fleece and a gentle temperament so has just been promoted to "Stud" and his firstborn, Fiona, is stunning!
Lucinda - D.O.B 25th May 2011
Lucinda is a lovely friendly alpaca and became a mum for the first time in 2013. She is now mum to Coco, Darcy, Fiona and Hero. She is a wonderful mum and produces stunning babies, with calm temperaments, just like her.
Eva - D.O.B 27th June 2016
Eva has been named after James' nana :Eva Minnie Dell, who has knitted lots of beautful items out of our alpaca yarn which are on display in our shop. Eva was the first born daughter of Cleo, and needed a little assistance with feeding to begin with as Cleo was a little reluctant. She has a lovely nature and is our cuddliest alpaca!
Sooty - D.O.B 21st September 2011
Sooty was one of our original starter herd when we bought 26 alpacas in April 2012. He was just 7 months old then and very sweet. Easy to halter train he joined our walking team from the beginning and has a calm and placid nature. His best friend is Sweep.
Sweep - D.O.B 10th October 2011
Sweep was one of our original starter herd when we bought 26 alpacas in April 2012. We named him Sweep because of the noises he makes! He has always been gentle but hasn't had the easiest life medically and we nearly lost him once. But he plods on, despite his knocked knees, and is the slowest member of our walking team, often to be found at the back!

Freddie - D.O.B 11th July 2017

Freckle - D.O.B 4th August 2017
Freckle is first born to Delilah and dad is Kilimanjaro. He is a beautiful mid fawn colour and we are excited to see his character and fleece grown. He is a great member of our walking team

Casper - D.O.B 6th June 2014
Casper was our 2nd boy born here on the farm and is brother to Limelight and Barney. So far, Casper has been the easiest to halter train out of all of our alpacas. He took to it like a duck to water! He is a calm and friendly boy and always very popular on our alpaca walks. He has also been used on film on more than one occasion! A true star in every way.

Chewbacca - D.O.B 26th May 2013
Chewie arrived at Abbotts View Farm in February 2017 as a 3 and a half year old. He came with his two friends Brian and Alfie Chewie was unhalter trained and weighing in at 80kgs that proved a bit of a challenge. But he is now a firm member of our walking team and is most people's favourite due to his distinctive looks. Chewie is a Suri Alpaca
Hermes- D.O.B 29th January 2007
Hermes was bought as a stud male as part of our original herd. He is a Huacaya alpaca. He is a very pretty boy and always has an eye on the ladies, despite the fact that he is now retired (but ever hopeful!!). Hermes is a strong member of our walking team and a delight to work with

Brian joined us in February 2017 with his friends Chewbacca and Alfie, as a 3.5 year old. He wasn't halter trained when he arrived but after some calm and patient training he is now. He can be a little bit spooky so we don't always walk him, but he comes along with the rest of his herd anyway. He adores the horses and always goes over to say hi. He is a Suri alpaca.

Gemma - D.O.B 28th June 2018
Gemma was born to Mum Darcy and Dad Barney on a warm Summer's day. She is the most beautiful colour and quite a character!

Cleo - D.O.B 10th June 2014
Cleo was born here on the farm to mum Kattia and Dad Hermes. She really is a sweetheart but does suffer with a skin condition which means she loses hair around her eyes and muzzle. Depending on the season, these areas will appear a different colour depending on the cream used to keep the skin soft. She is mum to Eva. We have a huge soft spot for Cleo because of her skin issues probably, but also because she is so incredibly tolerant of us handling her to treat her.
