Alpaca Hair 2014

Will it be a re-run of 80s themes, fancy up-dos for everyone or something a little weirder?


In roughly 3 weeks, our fluffy foursome will be getting a new hairdo! The exact date’s not set yet –we’ll let you know when that is– but now is the time to get your vote in on what the girls’ hair should look like. So add your ideas to the comment section however funny or serious your idea is, we’ll consider them all!


Here’s the wool we’ll be working with this year. The two babies are almost full grown now! From left to right: Equinox (way in back), Emily, Ray, Retro.


As a refresher, this is what the girls looked like last year.

And here are the alpacas’ predecessors, the sheep –who have recently been reported as all doing quite well at their “retirement” home, if anyone was wondering– being sheared two years ago in 2012.

    APRIL 7 is now the date (as long as it is not raining and the girls are dry)

    How about a comb over for Retro.
    Of course who’s up for a poodle cut?

  3. Ranger Ro says:

    I vote for at least one to be totally bald. I loved the mohawk and Retro’s fade is pretty great.

    Ditto on the bald suggestion and the poodle cut on head. legs and end of tail. Glad to hear the sheep are enjoying retirement.

    No further suggestions…but added thanks for the sheep update…my 3 year old was just asking about them today.

    What time on the 7th? My 6yo son is a big llama/sheep fan and would love to attend, but doesn’t finish kindergarten until 3:30ish. I really wish the shearing could have taken place on a weekend day, when older children would be able to attend!

    Hi Norton:
    We’re shooting for 10:30 start on the 7th.
    we’ll try to get some video taken so that those who cannot make it to the shearing can see it on the Blog.
