Shearing Day at Hubbert Farms began around 8 am and finished close to 8pm. Alot of teamwork goes into shearing 30+ alpacas. Teeth are filed, toes trimmed. shots given and then there's the fleece. Skirting and sorting is a labour intensive job, especially the cria and suri fleeces. (hint...that's one of the reasons why they cost alittle more)
Moi, taking the freshly shorn fleece and then moving it to the skirting table.
As you can see the wee ones (aka Simon and Lacey) are growing like weeds. They will be 2 weeks old this Thursday! Mom Apple is devoted to her babes.
The surprise is that Kathy has given Lacey to me. I now have two Gotland cross ewes and one pure Finn ewe :-)
