A cousin and her husband have seventy alpacas and a few llamas. Today was the start of shearing season and they asked me to take some photos with their camera. Of course, I also took some with mine.
Sonny, the boss.
Socks on the noses stop them from biting. Alpacas aren't happy campers when they are being sheared.
My cousin "cowboying up"
In her mobility scooter with her "grabber" working along with everyone else.
Shasa, the Great Pyrenese. She never leaves the alpacas. Along with the llamas, protects the alpacas from coyotes and feral dogs.
Bernese mountain dogs. Protect the farmstead from two legged scavengers. A big problem in the area.
A Pyerenese/St Bernard mix, Shasa's future replacement.
Never forget the weather.
Hope you enjoyed these. Format is wonky as Blogger and I seem to be having "issues". Tis a poor workman who blames his tools.
