My husband and I are getting up there in age, we usually co-op with other farms.
I just am not able to do 70 alpacas anymore. This was our first shearing at our farm.
Pete and his crew were knowledgeable, gentle with my old skinny's and awesome.They did everything involved: noodling, samples, nails and teeth.  I basically just gave them information on each animal. Such a pleasure to work with. Although I did miss feeding the guys!
