Save The Date

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).
This is Sidney, after she went through the sprinklers and in need of a brush out.  She is my mama Llama (mom to Peach and Xanchoo).  I'm hoping that she is with cria now and if she is she will be due sometime in July or August.

This is Jack (I call him Hippy Jack or Jack Jack).  His "bangs" are in his eyes most of the time.  He is a Suri Alpaca so you can see the difference in the two breeds of Alpacas when you visit.  He is a bit high strung too so you may be able to pet him or maybe not.

The boy child and Xanchoo.  Xanny is just 2 years old and is my youngest.  He still has a lot of spunk in him.  Last year during show season, he did very well taking first place in several events. Of course he had a very good handler last year and I'm hoping the same person will handle him this year - he needs it.
Last but not least we have Peach and the girl child.  Peach is my biggest Llama (tallest).  I sometimes have a hard time getting her halter on if she doesn't want it on as she sticks her nose up in the air and it makes it hard to reach.
So there you have it, your formal invitation to shearing.
