Alpaca & Muscovy

“shorn” the sheep at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow, Cirencester

Well with the Alpaca shearers booked for later on, the method is totally different for sheep so we had a shearer recommended to us for our “long wools”. with a hectic farmingĀ  life requiring husbandry (120 plus toenails on average each time) and topping a necessity to keep good grass growing all the time despite munching mouths, it was the time for the first shear for the Wensleydales!
