Episode #17 - Shearing Day!

Last week, John and I went to the alpaca shearing at the Oyama Lake Alpaca Farm. This week's podcast is a selection of audio clips recorded there.

Many thanks to Jim & Darlene, whose willingness to allow the public to come and watch the shearing is so appreciated!

Ready for a trim, but that doesn't mean I have to like it!
