One of the highlights of this year's shearing extravaganza was our visit from Jan from the St. Louis Zoo.
She is one of the many capable people that help to care for Doc Andrus and Doc Freeman, the two alpaca boys at the zoo.
She came to the farm for a "professional development day" and came ready with a list of questions. I'm hoping we were ready with the answers.
Jan jumped right in and caught and haltered dozens of animals, caught fleece, observed toenail trimming and deworming protocol, among many other things.
Be sure to stop in at the Emerson Children's Zoo at the St. Louis Zoo and see the two alpaca boys that came from our farm. We're proud!
And Jan, thanks for the help.
