Shed's all set and ready for the shearing...

A lot of hugging and puffing by all at TOFT yesterday as we hooked and hooked, swept and sorted all our hurdles and available sheds ready for the shearing. We begin tomorrow, Wednesday and hopefully finish 200 alpacas later on Saturday. Unfortunately the weather forecast doesn't look good so we needed to get all our available space clear yesterday to enable us to shed up at least 80 alpacas ready for tomorrow. We can't shear when wet so it's vital we get enough dry to get through tomorrow on the hope that the forecast is right and by Thursday the sun is out and all is dry. We shall see, all. I know this morning is  TOFT is ready and waiting for the shearer to arrive.
