In order to successfully shear his own animals, Russell initially pursued the art of shearing in 2005 under the tutalege of well known shearer Ann Kaiser. He quickly became one of the most sought after shearers in the alpaca community, known for his attention to detail, compassion for the animals and respect for the desires of his customers. In 2010 Russell started teaching his children to shear and now has quite a team. Joshua, the oldest, has been shearing for two seasons and with the help of his brother Joe will be shearing for his own customers in 2012. If you have a desire for our team to shear for you be sure to contact us early in the season.
