Three Old Gentleman213 viewsThese three old gentlemen --- Batman, Brad, and McVit --- are all that's left from our small herd of alpacas. We decided, after our visit to Peru, that nobody in their right mind would pay 4,000 or more for an animal that has one cria a year (if you're lucky) and can produce enough fibre for a 45 sweater each season. But they sure are cute.

The Three Alpacas178 viewsOur three alpacas are getting on in years --- they are circa 13 or 14 years old. These three gentlemen were born at Lucies Farm. They remind me of three old bachelors, playing cards and smoking cigars.

Shall We Dance? Alpaca Shearing249 viewsThese two gentlemen, from New Zealand, spend a couple of months touring the U.K. and shearing circa 4,000 alpacas. Our three are old men and their fleece isn't of particularly good quality. But we have them sheared because it's healthier for the alpacas.

Alpaca Shearing at Lucies Farm268 viewsThis is the third alpaca to be sheared. He watched the shearers tie up the other alpacas' legs, so he's a bit more crafty.

Three Sheared Alpacas554 viewsThey look a bit skinny and sad, but it was hot today (July 3 2005) and I bet they were pleased to be out of their thick alpaca wool "sweaters."
