We had a great crew of friends who came out to help us. The dogs were great with everyone and the girls charmed Keyla, our most difficult alpaca. She got a proper hair cut this year. She's not currently pregnant and she usually begins to prolapse during shearing, but all was well this year. Whew.
The only injury was a cut to my little finger on the last alpaca, although there were a few bruises and a couple of raspberries.
16 alpacas are a lot more than the 13 we had last year. ;-) We are only expecting one cria this summer, so we will most likely have 17 alpacas next year. Our friends have said it would be better to break it into two days. So we'll keep our fingers crossed that they are willing to come back for two days next year. ;-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday..
