Guys we would like you to meet Seth, he is one of the fourteen new rescues who have joined #thewoollyarmy this year! He is a huarizo which is an alpaca/llama cross and he’s been on his own as a flock guard, so understandably he has some behavioural issues from being isolated. He was kindly being taken care of temporarily by a lovely hero of a lady who saw he needed help. She didn’t quite feel confident enough to give him the attention he needed long term, and we were happy to step in and take over when she contacted us. He is now living with a small herd of our younger llama boys (photobomb by Rocksteady and Mr Biggles) and is getting on brilliantly. @alpacaly might even have a new favourite! Shhh don’t tell Boo…
Seth is not our first huarizo, he joins the much loved Frodo who hangs out with our llama boys at Little Town Farm. Frodo is best buds (aka bromance) with Jojo who is a full-blooded long legged llama boy. The two make quite the couple with Frodo’s shorter fluffier more-alpaca like appearance and Jojo with his very leggy llama looks! Seth may join our trekking boys one-day but for now he’s hanging out with the ‘trainees’ and learning to feel more relaxed around humans and his new buddies :)
As a social enterprise that rescues and re-homes alpacas and llamas we are always happy when someone contacts us to ask if we can help. We always try to say yes and each animal that comes into our care goes into a trust with us. This trust says that they will remain with us for their… Alpacaly Ever After! If you would like to support the work we do, there are several ways you can do this… Support the Woolly Army x
We do a lot of work with 3rd Sector Organisations as well. We are non-profit so that means any additional funds we get, after paying for animal food and medical bills, paying our staff and other overheads, we put that money into a Community Pot allowing us to offer our walks and treks free of charge, or at a heavily discounted rate for groups and organisations in our community that need a little help with funding, and that greatly benefit from our experiernces.
