Saturday, May 1 you are invited to attend 2010 Shearing Day! It will be held at the old lumber yard (traditional arts building area over by the county annex). Whispering Pine Alpacas will be there to be sheared and my llamas and alpacas will be there to be sheared.
Come say hi. You can learn the difference between the Llama and Alpaca, pet them both, visit with some spinners and weavers and we will be doing some other fiber demonstrations like wet felting and needle felting.
Come by 10:00 and see my kids and animals in the Brown County Spring Blossom Parade and then wander over to the shearing event. There will be lots of other things going on in BC that day so I'm sure you can find something to do.
Come see Patrick, Jack, Ted, Sidney, Xanchoo and Peach!
This is Patrick - my shy boy. He is also my biggest Alpaca. He has an aswesome fleece! So Soft and when you love on him, you just want to bury your face in him he is so soft.
Here is Ted (Teddy Bear). You can come hear him "sing". He is very vocal and has a lot to say. Hmmm
Ted will also eat out of your hand so we will have some treats available for you to share with him (and the others).
So there you have it, your formal invitation to shearing.
