Naked Alpacas

April 23, 2013 | Sherry Samuels

We used to have naked sheep once a year- check out last year’s sheep shearing. The four of them lost about 21 pounds of wool. Much less than the 35 pounds the 4 sheep took off last year This is our first year shearing alpacas and today was the day. They no longer look like this:

 

Ray experiences her first complete shearing

Jonathan lays the alpacas down, straightens them out, and ties their legs. It goes pretty quickly and easily.

 

come look how skinny Emily is!

We’ll get some video and more photos up in the near future, but do come by and check out the girls. I am sure the keepers will want to talk about hairdo options and more!
