    What a shitty, unforgivable shearing job was done on that helpless alpaca.
    Shame on the person who did the job and shame on the town for allowing it.

    I agree it’s a bit rough around the edges. But I bet even this bad hair cut the Alpaca is enjoying it with the new warm weather.

    I can’t help but laugh, the alpaca looks like it’s missing it’s pajamas now!

    Thanks, Dan, for showing us a sheared Alpaca. We don’t get to see one that often.

    Thank you, Ogden Nash.
    Oops, you mean it’s not a llama? It’s an alpaca? I’ve been waiting years to recite that ditty!
