New Arrivals At Raystede.
Friday 2 March
Raystede is proud to announce that we have two more alpacas joining our herd.
Ash and Inky came from a petting zoo in Hampshire and are now looking forward to a happy retirement here.
They can be seen in our fields by day and roam our secured sanctuary enclosure at night to protect our birds and wildlife from foxes. Naturally guarding animals, they are an excellent friendly alternative to keeping predators at bay. They do this by sending out an alarm call by way of a loud pitched bray and make use of their feet to kick at small prey and spit at them.
Both Ash and Inky are halter trained and, once settled in, they will be seen being led around our grounds.
