Mike safely has some excellent articles on this subject, he says at least two generations, and it would be called linebreeding.

I have a young (1 1/2 yr) old boy that I took away from Mom and put in boys pen, the other boys don't bother him but he constantly is pacing along fence that divides boys and girls. I had noticed this behavior also when I moved him around 1 yr of age, I put him back thinking maybe if I gave him more time to mature.
I'm afraid he will make himself sick, not sure what to do, anyone else have this problem? I've had 15 Alpacas born and never had this problem.
