Alpaca Shearing can be fun

It has been coming for a while but finally arrived this week - alpaca shearing.

Preparation makes the job easier and more enjoyable, though it is still a necessary, physical, dirty and smelly job - it is lucky we like the smell of alpacas!

Millie is always first because everything else is easier after that.

A good crop of fleece this year and the girls seem in good condition.

Cria watch begins soon for us! I like this time of year.
