Sooty was one of our original herd, purchased back in April 2012. He was born on 21st September 2011, so was nearly 7 months old when we first met him, and full of character! He was incredibly cute and was paired to another alpaca who was equally cute. When we touched him he made a high pitched squeak which gave the pair their names: Sooty & Sweep! Sooty's best friend now is Casper and they will need to be rehomed together. Both like to lead the herd so will often be found at the front together. Herd leaders are very important because the rest won't walk unless the leader does! Sooty is castrated
