The Slug!

Sylvester is little alpaca, who pretends he is nervous to win everyone over. Once he gets to know you, he is actually a confident chap who loves meeting new people and taking them on walks around Nidderdale! He enjoys doing meet and greet, showing off his luscious suri alpaca fleece, and making people smile. Hes a happy little alpaca, who enjoys every aspect of life, except from cold or hot weather (definitely a fair weather alpaca)! Within the herd, he can be a little bit bossy, and enjoys telling the other alpacas and llamas off, but hes super sweet with humans! A lovely little alpaca!

On the farm, Sylvester is commonly referred to as ‘Slug’. He gained this nickname originally when we were training him, as with any pressure on his head collar, he would sit down and slime across the floor instead of walk. The nickname has now stuck and we call him Slug or Sluggy more than we do Sylvester!

Sylvester’s ideal trekking companion is someone who enjoys a gentle stroll and can offer him some gentle encouragement and reassurance.
