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!
