SHEARING 2017

3 FABULOUS DAYS OF FLEECE HARVEST! THANK YOU TO OUR WONDERFUL SHEARING CREW, ARMANDA VICTORIA AND HIS TWO HELPERS, ALAN AND SOLOMON! Sunday was especially fun and exciting as we invited local persons who only own a few alpacas to bring them to the farm to be shorn. Most of the owners joined our team of enthusiastic helpers, cleaning alpacas, trimming toe nails, giving a few vaccines & learning about the fleece.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO RICHARD AND NANCY WALKER (OUR PARTNERS WITH SEED STOCK SURI ALPACAS) FOR THEIR EXTRAORDINARY SKIRTING AND NOODLING, GETTING THE FLEECE READY FOR MARKET.
Last but not least our tireless farm employee, Kaitlyn Cottrill whom we could not have done without. Thank you to Krista Webber, former employee who came Friday and Saturday to help prepare alpacas and work as part of the crew.
We had a great time and a special potluck lunch on Sunday!
Dave and I thank everyone who came for another successful harvest!
