Alpacas are creatures of habit, usually…


We are all creatures of habit but alpacas especially so. From feeding preferences and positions to grazing routes and times of the day. Millie and her daughters have particular behaviours that are noticeable but so do the others, even if they tend to hang back.

Noticing the tendency to form habits, how do we make good use of it? Calling them, feeding them at the same time in the same place and knowing where they are likely to be at different times of the day can all be used to our advantage in simplifying how we manage our charges. It also means we get to spend more time watching them and interacting with them. Which has got to be a good thing.
