May 3 @ 8:00 am-12:00 pm
Nothing fancy, just a down and dirty morning for our herd of alpacas to get their annual haircut, along with trimming teeth, toenails, top knots, and tails. Like a day at the alpaca spa! Folks that visit often have questions about alpaca shearing so we decided to open it up to the public. A team of four shearers will arrive early Monday morning (right now I’m guessing on the time) and shear alpacas until they’re finished, two to three hours at least.
Rest assured that no harm comes to our alpacas. Their legs are restrained to hold them still so that no one gets hurt. The whole process takes about eight minutes, and our alpacas are much cooler having just shed their winter coats.
Come see how it’s done. We’ll have the Farm Store open too, at least until noon.
