Has anyone else got Alpaca guinea pigs ?

I have two boys called Mr Bumble ans Mr bee
://i87.pho[IMock]htbutGp
I got them from RSPCA and they were just called "Wooly Guineas" They came from a breeder who had over 300 of them ! I don`t think they new what grass was or open spaces and still after 2 1/2 years with me they spend alot of time in their houses.I give them a few hair cuts a year and when they are due for their cuts they look just like a sheep rug and you don`t know which end is which ! When they had their first hair cuts was the first time I had heard an angry guinea, but no matter how angry they got with me they have never bittern or tried to bite me ! Now they just grumble a bit ! Mr Bee enjoys good health, but Mr Bumble has had one thing after another wrong with him, but he just keeps bouncing back !

I've got a texel X alpaca. He is lovely, but I have to keep trimming his fur. He hates being brushed or combed, but does'nt mind me giving him a short back and sides! :D

They sound lovely boys and so very lucky to have found a loving pet home. Poor little lads must have had a terrible start in life. It's shameful the way some people keep guinea pigs.

I love the long-hairs but think that breeders have gone to far with some of the breeds :(
in the right pet home, well groomed and trimmed they are fine, but I've had some come into rescue in an awful state.

I've got quite a few in the rescue :) They are handsome, but need a home where they will get the extra care they need. Three alpaca lads will be ready very soon. Two are tricolours and the other a handsome black with highlights. There was another but Someone has had their eye on him for a while.
