We were asked to helped on Shearing Day at our local Alpaca/Llama friends ranch.
It was such a cool experience for the children to get to help.
I was a "noodler" for the day. I would roll the fresh shorn coat/fiber from the animal into a roll and package it up with any good neck fiber.
And I got to tell you, while it was an awesome fun day, I WILL wear knee pads if I ever noodle for the day again.
