|L-R : Leslie and Eric|
For a while I had contemplated Latin names for them. Perhaps Pablo and Neruda after the poet? Perhaps Gabriel and Garcia after GG Marquez the author? Perhaps Fidel and Castro after the Cuban leader?
|Still as little wary of us, ears back!|
In the end, as the alpacas were the only males in our herd, I gave the honour of naming to The Lad and a fine job he did too. So Eric and Leslie they are.

When they are not spitting, they make a very pleasant humming sound.
Eric and Leslie will guard our mob of sheep (when we get them) from foxes and the rumoured wild dogs and hopefully keep our cow somewhat company in the paddock.
