Wow they really are alot thinner under all that...

Dumb question? What do you do with the fur? Is it worth anything like Alpacas?? I dont have a clue..

Do you just shear them once or more??

Great Pictures thanks for sharing.


Now we want to shear Witch U Caller, she is part Llama X Alpaca

Just back home from being bred to an Alpaca.

Would appreciate any helpful hints or tips on how to do this.

Oh yes would like to trim her feet also? have done goats feet before so thinking the same?

Any tips would be wonderful? thanks

Its very important that she get sheered. It helps with over heating but also sometimes the females will not get bred if not sheered.

YOu can either do it yourself or have somebody who sheers llamas/sheep do it. YOu need a cattle clippers, I am not sure if there is a special blade for llamas or not. All you do is clip around their belly, shoulders to hip.

We do have cattle clippers, and we do our own miniature horses with Double K's for the shows.

So I quess hubby will just try the cattle clippers, I am thinking of leaving the head neck and legs.

Hope to get her done during his holidays first two weeks in July.

Thanks
enjoyed your picture.

after we get her clipped will show you her, if you like to see her?

yeah shure i suppose cattle klippers should work and i would suggesta barrel to modified barrel cut or you can just look at JUSTINA II for barrel cut and basicly a modified barrel mcut is a barrel but you shave part of the flank and around the tail 2 Sox has one
