Shear delight

The alpacas were shorn at the weekend.  It is always a great relief to have that task done.  As usual there were a few surprises.  Our Qjori cria are now easier to distinguish... well at least one was who now looks very dark brown/black, the other two are still two peas in a pod.  Our big dark brown girl (sired by Jack) at the back also cut over 5kg of fleece (3.2kg of saddle).

Ginger was not so much of a surprise since we already knew he was gorgeous but an even better colour than I expected and just as handsome without his fleece.  Golden Garland also looks considerably darker without her fleece, she was a very pleasant surprise.

Now we just need the warmer weather so they can make the most of their new haircuts!

The alpacas look very smart with their new hair cuts. Let's hope the weather forecasters are correct - predicting little or no rain.
