With summer heat only a few weeks away we have completed our annual ritual of giving each llama their summer haircuts. Some of the llamas get show cuts while others are shorn completely. Most of our breeding females receive a full body shearing to provide them the maximum comfort during the hot anc very humid Indiana summers.
Our pet llamas such as Buster and Lewis also receive full body cuts.
Heat Stress is the largest risk most llamas face during the hot summer months. Shearing your llamas is absolutely essential to protect them from the often fatal effects of heat stress. For information on shearing your llamas check in the General Care section (http://www.ywl.com/?cat=13) of our Llama FAQ.
