alpaca shearing 2013

Shearing alpacas is always interesting. They are tied up and shorn one side then flipped over and the other side is shorn. Some taken it in their stride, others like our young wether squeal the whole way through! It is amazing the difference in their size and presence before and after shearing! 
You can see the difference in the photos above and left, Silver Rose our pride and joy with her fleece a few days ago on the left and Silver Rose and Tux in the photo above. They look so skinny!
They sulk a bit but as you can see above Tux was still willing to talk to me!

I couldn't help but show you the snow pea growing in our veggie patch and I love this photo of our new chooks enjoying their new accommodation!
