Shearing course - shearing llama & alpaca in a gentle way
Llamas are shorn standing. We can shear only the belly part or if necessary, the whole body of the aninal.
- Alpacas are laid on a table. They are held in position by three persons. The position is natural, the animals are not stretched or bent in any way. No tying of the limbs is involved.
Content of the course:
Everything about a good tondeuse (shearing knife)
Preparation of the spot we plan to shear and of the animal
the actual activity of shearing
