Alpaca & Muscovy

Shearing almost upon us now

in my last post I went off on a tangent about Fly Strike in Alpacas but meant to talk about shearing… related of course because when cuts occur during shearing (inevitable but not often) folk often think that being shorn means Alpaca cannot get Fly Strike. WRONG, they are actually more vulnerable when shorn where a nick or cut might have been missed.

meantime, this little black beauty clearly needs a hair cut!!
