Alpaca & Muscovy

Shearing day arrives in Covid 19 and 27 degree heat at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow

Well a great day for shearing actually as the heat meant all mums to be could be left out instead of being penned up ready. just the boys had that pleasure but we already know they love the attention:


plenty of helpers (adhering to social distancing) is the key but then things will still go wrong LOL

but just take a look at how much fleece (to be turned into yummy yarn) comes off our Alpaca and that’s just the tail!

blessed relief for all the alpaca, especially pregnant mums to be rid of their fleeces in this heat
