The grand old alpaca shearing

July 7, 2013

Last Monday I had a phone just as I had finished munching through my dinner…. Rachel my friend asking me did I still want the alpaca fleece as the shearer was at the farm now!!!! Hell yeah!!!! Mr J and I jumped into the car with the Sookie monster and dashed down the road to the farm where Al the Alpaca was just about to undergo the shearing process!!

The whole process was quite a workout for the shearer who had sheared 260 sheep that day already!!! It took three people to pin him down and shear him in the end and he got a good few kicks and spits off!!

In the end he was a scrawny looking thing and I have a good few bags of his scrummy fleece!!!!
