Central NY Rain keeps wet alpacas fully fleeced!

Did I mention that we are STILL waiting for the alpacas to dry out so we can shear them?! Here we are ...June 9th, 2006 with wet wooly wonders just waiting to be shorn of their luxurious alpaca fleece. At least the rain keeps them cool as they can not tolerate the extremely hot temps. Once the temps hit high 80's, or even into the 90's.... they do not do well. They truly love the water though! You so much as walk near the garden hose and they'll come running, teasing to be sprayed. Hopefully they'll dry out by my next nights off from work.
