Shearing Day 2014 was a huge success. First of all, we couldn’t have asked for better weather….both on Saturday and the few days leading up to shearing. We didn’t have to put all the alpacas in the big barn until Friday night which made for a much less stressful time for them. Brian and his team arrived shortly before 7:00 a.m. and got right to work. We were so fortunate this year to have our niece Briana, as well as Stephanie & Sarah all vet students at the University of Illinois here to help out. Our daughter Kellie also joined in on the fun. Not only did the girls do a great job, but they brought a lot of fun and laughter to the morning as well. Now, it’s time to start working with the 2014 clip.
Below are just a few of the many pictures I took Saturday. Enjoy!
