Shearing 2018

Shearing is well underway here at NZ Summerhill Alpacas! And how amazing do the spotties fleeces look coming off the back! 😍

We have an amazing team helping out this year, who make the big job easy! We are so lucky to have amazing sheds to house our alpacas in, so they are all dry during this terrible weather we are having at the moment!

We are very excited but also very sad to say 'goodbye' to our first group of alpacas after being in our quarantine facility for 42 days. They are heading to the UK and EU...

These 7 alpacas have had an amazingly stress free quarantine and are in fantastic health and condition...

A huge thank you to the team at NZ Summerhill Alpacas for running the quarantine so well.
