About Ben: adopting an alpaca
When you adopt an alpaca from Alpaca Annie, you’re helping with the upbringing and maintenance of one of the world’s most beautiful creatures as well as supporting a small business.
Born on 7th September 2015, Ben is a cheeky alpaca who has no shame and will ‘mug’ anyone who walks into the paddock with carrots. Ben has an older brother Billy and they are almost identical. It can be very difficult to tell them apart.
You will notice when visiting that Ben has a different fleece to most of the other alpacas. This is because he is a ‘Suri’ alpaca and their fleece is softer, silkier but also grows down towards the ground. This means his hairstyle is very similar to dreadlocks.
Ben is a nervous boy when it comes to trekking out with the humans and may not be your trekking buddy on an adoption visit. Until Ben overcomes his fears, we’d love you to take his brother Billy on your trek.
