Shearing Day 2013 was on April 10th. And what a cold and rainy day it was! It actually started raining on Monday, the 8th so by Sunday evening we had all the alpacas (all 34 of them) tucked away in the big barn to stay dry. By the time shearing day came around, they were none too happy!
Even Balto wondered what all the fuss was about.
The day started off only in the upper 30s and with a cold rain. It continued to rain all day long and only made it into the 40s by the end of the day. But Brian and his crew from Shearing Alpacas got there promptly at 9:00 a.m. and got to work.
I will tell you, because of Brian and his crew, this was the easiest, least stressful shearing I have ever been through! I would highly recommend them!
CSA fiber has already left the farm and has arrived at the fiber processor, Shepherd’s Mill, Phillipsburg, KS for processing.
