Shearing Day on the Farm!

 Here he is, Tim the great Alpaca wrangler! This morning before our shearers got there, we harnessed and wormed everyone...
 The gang was quite suspect, with much humming going on in the barnyard.
 Our shearers arrived and got right to work shearing all the sheep first. The lambs were very upset because they did not recognize their mom's. They began screaming because they thought there were strangers in the barnyard with them!
 
 The Alpacas were done right after the sheep with some screaming. The seasoned old timers took it with a grain of salt and accepted their shearing with grace and composer.
Their teeth and hooves were trimmed. We broke our record for time from last year down to an hour and a half. A big shout out and much thanks to our friend BillieJo who came over and gave us a hand. Tim claims this as the worst day of his year, me it's not so bad! They are trimmed and ready for the hot weather ahead and we got some beautiful fiber as well!
