:lol::lol: @Bruce

Disclaimer: I know very little about alpacas but find it very odd that yours haven’t come to trust you more. The good far outweighs the bad during their time with you. I’d think they’d at least be more tolerable.

Geez I wish I could get through mine that fast. Are yours really dirty at skin level? My boys are a mess, I think that is why I can't used the electric shears more than one side, dull right up.

Teddy stands relatively quietly, Laddie bucks and kicks the entire time, even when I had all 4 feet tied to the stand last time. DD1 has volunteered to NOT help with shearing Laddie this year. Of course if we do it in May it won't matter much anyway. Her BF is graduating Purdue and she's going out for the majority of the month.

Virginia is for Pasture Farmers!
Clean at skin, but they had lots of junk on top that I brushed out first.
I use fiskar razor edge hand shears and bought their sharpener.
I'll have to lay and stretch Ty out next year when I do legs n necks. Derrik may or may not need it, but we'll find out then.
