It's Haircut Day For Residents Of Llama And Alpaca Farm

It's a very exciting day over at Sun and Moon Farm and you're about to find out why! Every so often, llamas and alpacas need to be sheared to ensure healthy fur growth and their own comfortability. As you can probably imagine, sheathing alpacas and llamas is no simple task! It tasks much skill and the right tools and equipment to get the job done right.

The folks at this farm are clearly experts. They place the animals in comfortable positions (even if they might not look comfortable!) that allow them to easily sheathe the necessary fur. We absolutely adore llamas and alpacas. They are such wholesome and sweet animals and we think they rock their haircuts excellently!

Llamas Have Become Popular Therapy Animals

Move over, therapy dogs. Here come the llamas!

Llamas and alpacas are simultaneously growing more common in therapeutic settings. While a handful are registered with Pet Partners, a national nonprofit clearinghouse for therapy animals, most are simply family farm pets whose owners take them to hospitals, college campuses and senior centers to ease people's stress.

At Pet Partners, 94%  of the registered therapy animals are dogs, but there are 20 llamas and alpacas in the mix, said Elisabeth Van Every, a spokeswoman for the group. (Most are llamas, which are much larger than alpacas and typically far friendlier to humans.)

Writing in The New York Times, Jennifer A. Kingson explains how the charismatic camelids are increasingly being used for therapeutic purposes in nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities. "The novelty factor is a big part of the appeal, along with the creatures' big-eyed, empathetic gaze," she writes.
