Over the years of keeping alpacas I have learnt various lessons
- Lesson 1 – You have to learn
- Lesson 2 – Use the right equipment
- Lesson 3 – It is not a race
- Lesson 4 – Learn who to listen to
- Keep calm
- Be prepared
- Always have spares
- Remember to keep drinking
- Take your time doing dark animals at the end of the day
- Know your animals
- Know your anatomy
- If in doubt – stop, look, and go careful
- If it feels wrong it probably is
- Label fleece bags inside and out.
Finally – enjoy yourselves
