I was pretty nervous about this year considering everything we are dealing with right now and the number of alpacas we needed to get shorn in one day. Thankfully our shearing date fell on one of my "good" days.
Thanks to the Brookfarm Shearing Team of 11 people we were able to shear 54 alpacas, resulting in 251 lbs of fiber, with an average of 10.4 minutes per alpaca over the course of the 11 hour day.

Now we are taking a couple of days to recuperate before my Friday blood draw in preparation for chemo number 7 next week.
Countdown is getting closer. :-)
