Macdonald’s Fleecy Beasties first started back in 2015 when owners Catriona and Simon Macdonald feel in love with alpacas as soon as the saw them. After plenty of research, they discovered Barnacre Alpacas which is run by Debbie and Paul Rippon.
After a visit, a training day and plenty of chats with they knew it was the perfect decision to get a few and Fleecy Beasties was born. Fast forward a few years, their fleet is now eight-strong and the family are experts on the ways of an alpaca and decided to share it with couples all over the North East. Catriona says, "We wanted to share our love and passion for both people and animals. Having extensive experience of working with a wide variety of people for more than 30 years, we believe spending time with our friendly, loveable 'Fleecy Beasties' offers realtherapeutic value." Involvement at weddings is important to the company, whether it be to offer walks or provide photo opportunities, either way, it will beextremely enjoyable for all ages. Whether that be young people, the elderly or anyone in between.
Other than these celebratory events, the business is happy to visit local fairs, schools, clubs, care homes, hospices and more. One-offvisits or repeat sessions are available. Catriona adds: "We and the alpacas (especially if they know they're going to be receiving carrot as a treat) will hope to see you soon!"
