We decided to shear our cria that were born in July. There are mixed thoughts and sometimes controversial opinions on if you should shear a cria born after shearing time (typically in May for this area). We decided to shear them mostly because it's been so hot and they both had a lot of long thick fleece. We felt it was best for them to be shorn. Their fleece will be plenty long by fall to keep them warm. We do not plan to show them until spring anyway, and with their cria fiber gone their fleece shouldn't hold onto debri as much as it would have if we left the cria fiber on.
