Have you ever wondered what would make a good family pet but don't want a dog or cat?

Marsh Farm, in South Woodham Ferrers, is the only place in Essex you can walk with the hilarious animals.

All five of their alpacas arrived at the farm in July, and two of them - Cryptonite and Quantum - have been trained to walk with children.
