No Welsh adventure is complete without a front row, meet the boys, all given traditional Welsh names to make them feel at home…

Dylan

(In Welsh mythology, Dylan was a legendary sea god) – Our brown alpaca, the oldest of our boys and the most confident. So much so when he first arrived, he leapt out the trailer into the paddock leading the way for the other boys to follow. Also, the clumsiest of the three.

Dewi

(meaning beloved or friend) – the chattiest and loves his food. If you want to see him get really excited then fresh watermelon is enough to send him over the edge. His thick white fleece means we have to trim his top knot regularly.

Ceri - alpaca farm & alpaca experiences in south wales

Ceri

(gender-neutral name of Welsh origin that means Love.) – what can we say, the quietest and gentlest of our boys, with a constant surprised look on his face. See if you can spot his little white whisp in amongst is black fleece.   

Always into something Dylan, Dewi and Ceri bring the zen (and a healthy dose of mischief) to Stay Balanced, finding fun in the everyday, whether it be a trek around the Stay Balanced grounds or taking a selfie or two. What started out as an impromptu pet purchase has become so much more – now very much part of the family with personalities that are just too individual to keep to ourselves, we would like to share the fun with you.

The AlpacaWalking & feeding Experience

Alpaca walking is a great way to get outside, breathe and reconnect with nature – with a furry friend to help guide you. Balance out the hustle and bustle of normal life and do something out of the ordinary.

WHAT IT INCLUDES:

  • 90-minute alpaca experience for up to 4 people
  • Feeding, petting not forgetting the all-important nose nuzzling photos
  • Getting up closer with nature & our furry friends

HOW IT WORKS:

Your ramble will start with a health and safety briefing (don’t worry the Alpacas will have already been briefed prior to your arrival) a walk around the grounds of Stay Balanced. Nestled on the outskirts of Newport wetlands and nature reserve there is plenty to spot, Dewi, in particular, is fond of spotting a heron or two. Whilst our Alpacas are always fascinated by little humans, sometimes little hands can be a little too much for them so whilst we welcome children over the age of 5 those 14 and under are able to help their accompanying adult to hold the lead.

Cost : £35 per adult / £25 per child

​​Walking & feeding Alpaca with the added bonus of afternoon tea for you or as we like to call it ‘Alpaca-lunch’. Alpaca walking is a great way to get outside, breathe and reconnect with nature – with a furry friend to help guide you. Balance out the hustle and bustle of normal life and do something out of the ordinary, add cake and tea to that, and it’s the perfect day.

WHAT IT INCLUDES:

  • 3-hour experience for up to 4 people
  • Alpaca feeding & walking
  • Afternoon tea with a glass of fizz (Optional)
  • Getting up closer with nature & our furry friends

HOW IT WORKS:

Your ramble will start with a health and safety briefing (don’t worry the Alpacas will have already been briefed prior to your arrival) walk around the grounds of Stay Balanced. Nestled on the outskirts of Newport wetlands and nature reserve there is wildlife a’plenty, whilst Dewi likes to spot heron’s, Ceri likes to bring up the rear and ensure no ones left behind.

Once you have completed your walk you will have the opportunity to feed your Alpaca and get him re-settled for a well-deserved rest. You will then be shown to our cosy 1980s Caravan otherwise known as Little Pye, looking out over the paddock where you can enjoy a locally produced afternoon tea – and even a glass of fizz if you fancy whilst the alpacas keep an eye on you!

Cost : £55 per adult / £40 per child

VIP Alpaca Appearance At Your Wedding Or Event

Obviously, you are the VIP guest at your event, however, imagine how excited your guests would be if you were able to share your love of Alpacas with them. Your event must be within 2 hours of Stay Balanced because much as the Alpacas love an adventure they can’t be on the road for too long.

Dewi, Dylan, Noa and Ceri love a party and would love to add some Stay Balanced magic to your event.

Contact us for a chat, and together we can balance your event with a healthy dose of Alpaca fun, from walks, feeding, and of course, a picture, or three.

Alpaca Facts!

The grass grows furiously here, helped along with a scattering of Alpaca manure. Did you know Alpaca poop is considered cold manure meaning you can apply it straight to your garden without risking biting your plants.

So, if you’re trying to create your own balanced corner of our great planet with plants herbs and even your own veg plot why not take home some alpaca poop to help you along.

You could even call it our alpaca tea… not to be confused with the typical British cuppa but a drink for your plants.
