It’s that time of year when harvest time is near…
Just another day at Quarry Critters Alpaca Ranch.
Eating grass, growing fiber being peaceful and content.
Until it’s shearing day, that’s when all the alpacas are scheduled for their hair cuts for a style more suited for summer heat.
Alpacas are brought into the cleaning area.
They patiently wait for their turn for a hair cut.
Then it is their turn to be shorn.
After shearing they are released back into their fields
Help the shearer…pull the fiber back away from the alpaca, get it into the storage.
Alpaca Handlers wrangle, walk, hold, and release alpacas and they move through the shearing possess.
Fiber Sorting put like fibers together
