Alpaca Shearing Day

This year, we sheared our alpacas on the weekend of May 24th. Shearing is a vital yearly occurrence for alpacas, ensuring their health and yielding valuable fleece. It is a meticulous process that demands a dedicated team's coordinated effort.

During shearing day, the alpacas are calmly gathered and taken to the shearing zone. Every alpaca is weighed to keep track of their health and development. Prior to starting the shearing process, the alpacas are given essential injections for their protection against possible health concerns. Furthermore, their toenails and teeth are trimmed to guarantee their comfort and general welfare.

The shearing day is a bustling and energetic occasion, with everyone involved working together seamlessly to complete the tasks at hand. It is a time of camaraderie and shared purpose, as each person plays a vital role in the success of the shearing process. Witnessing the teamwork and dedication of everyone involved is truly gratifying, as it highlights the importance of cooperation and unity in achieving a common goal. The satisfaction of completing such an essential task for the alpacas, while also reaping the rewards of their beautiful fleece, makes the shearing weekend a truly fulfilling and memorable experience for all.
