Alpaca & Muscovy

Shearing at Kensmyth Alpaca, Clay Meadow in May 2022

Well hubby did a grand job and friends joined us for the annual “shearing gathering and lunch” for the Alpaca all indoors ready and waiting.. then wait for it, for the first time ever, the shearer called to say he could not make it as his handler was sick. This being at 7 am in the morning of course.. well, ever ready here, he came regardless and we all learnt very quickly what we had been watching for years.

Truly appreciated what the helpers do all day after us wrinklies had to do it all day –  thank you (massively) to Mitch’s (and family lifelong friend) Jason for being so nimble and our sons and of course hubby as it went really smoothly.. not many photos as we are all “mucking in”
