Yesterday turned out to be a real treat.
We visited Why Not Alpacas at Sedbergh, Cumbria
After being greeted by the hosts and Alpaca breeders Robin and Caroline, we were given a guided tour around the form. Robin, a jovial and very informative expert regaled us with Alpaca anecdotes, profound advice and fascinating facts about their herd. Caroline introduced us to many individual Alpacas describing their personality, character and pedigree.
Occasionally in life one meets people who are truly inspirational. Robin and Caroline fit this description very well.
Meeting the hosts and their beautiful animals made an ordinary day MAGICAL.

If you are looking at getting Alpacas, then look no further. Robin and Caroline are the people to deal with. Their knowledge on them are outstanding and they will guide you in the right direction.
We had a wonder full afternoon with them, and met the females with crias. We bought 3 boys , 2 we picked that day, the other we waited to see how they budded up, as we weren't getting them until they come off their mums.
A few months down the line and we have now got our boys ,we have had them a week and they have settled in fine. I walk them nearly every day. They are Great. If you need to know any think or are worried about your Alpacas, Robin and Caroline are just at the end of the phone and are only too happy to help. Thank you both once again.

Collected 3 new girls yesterday , they travelled up to Scotland like angels and joined the 2 we have like old friends. In fact one of the grew up with the 2 we have. We took them for a walk today and they were very well behaved and seemed to enjoy being with us and were happy to be stroked and kissed Love sitting in the barn with them listening to the lovely sounds they make . Thankyou so much to Robin and Caroline who have been so supportive helping us increase our herd . Can’t wait to have baby Crias next year fingers crossed x

Both Robin and Caroline were incredibly kind and beyond helpful. We needed to export our new guys to Ireland which gave Robin more work than normal. He was on top of everything without delay. The five alpacas we bought were the most gentle and calm alpacas we have ever had. Straight off the delivery vehicle, they were inquisitive and very trusting. We have had alpacas for many years and this was by far our best experience. All five are doing very well and remain very easy to handle and a lot of fun to watch. What quirky personalities! Thanks so much Robin and Caroline.

We bought our first two alpacas from WhyNot Alpacas some 8 years ago. They came into our lives one grim February day, and they and their colleagues have been a joy ever since - to us, and to all the walkers, friends and neighbours who’ve come to know and love them. They’ve been amazingly easy and robust, smiling through all the wind, rain, snow and (very occasional) sun our very exposed spot has thrown at them, as well as at all the cameras pointed their way over the years. In fact I’m writing now as we’ve just had our first, thankfully minor, health issue in 8 years (which speaks of very solid stock!) and wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ to Robin and Caroline who were, as ever, on hand with advice, reassurance and care - an after sales service second to none. There’s a pic of our first two boys on this website, titled ‘Bring me sunshine’ – and that’s just what they’ve all done.
