The weather gods were smiling down on Patouland today as shearing went ahead this morning. Slightly later than planned and with a couple of rain breaks but the deed is done!
James Dixon and his wife Kim arrived at 0800hrs this morning to be met by a damp looking Patou herd. However, the wind was blowing a gale and they were drying out quickly, a cup of coffee and a chat and we were up and running. Three and a half hours later there was fleece everywhere but on the alpacas. Splendid!
