Can you buy them as pets?
Where can you buy them in Ireland?
Any specail laws I should know about regaurding them?
Not being smart but why do you want an Alpaca?
Do you have room / time to care for it? Have you researched them?
I didnt come here saying Im going getting one, Im not in the position to get one at all, Im meerly enquiring. I have researched them but as researching anything to do with alpacas in Ireland im drawing a blank unless I want to farm them, which of course I dont want to do.
They are very cool.
Well the links I put up there should give you some information. I couldn't find specific laws on Alpacas in Ireland, but there's breeding information/where you'd get one etc in the links
Yes they are, we saw some yesterday in Coolwood farm in Killarney and they were just the coolest things...! Just wondering is all
That alpacas-in-ireland website was all I could find yesterday but it was down all day and this morning, well its working now and I might be able to get some info from there now.
They are very cute, this wesbite has cute pictures and information on alpaca. I don't know if they'd make great pets though. I met a farmer who had some and he said they are curious and come over to you but they aren't so tame. He said they would attack his dogs and also foxes. He keeps them in a field with lambing ewes as they protect the lambs. I have alpaca fleece which I'm spinning on my spinning wheel into wool. They make great fiber producing animals as their hair is very warm and soft.
