“Your professionalism goes above and beyond. You care so much about your clients and their animals besides just shearing. If we have any husbandry questions, you are very prompt about replying with helpful advice. Thank you so much for all the help you’ve given me. My alpacas and I greatly appreciate all of your help and kindness!”

Just a note to sing the praises of Anne at Star Gazing Farm. I am by no means a sheep expert, but always have room for animals needing homes. In this case, four sheep. Anne has been a great help to me by sharing her expertise and good humor. Good humor being essential when trying to shear my beloved “Lil Butt” — a 400 pound bundle of black wool, no neck and an attitude towards being sheared. Anne had been a great help in seeing that my little flock are well cared for and in good condition. I would not hesitate to recommend her and, in fact, have done so in the past.

We’ve know Anne for several years now and what a delight!! She’s knowledgeable, fun, a hard worker and a devoted animal lover; plus she’s not afraid of DIRT!! Anne has been an inspiration to me because my husband and I are not very experienced with llamas and alpacas and, yet, we’ve become parents to a number who needed a place to call home. Anne has taken the care of our pets on as her own. She even put us in touch with someone who could come to our home and do “barn” repairs which she had brought to our attention. Whew! What a relief! It’s an honor to know Anne and a pleasure to work with her. We have an Hispanic helper who feeds all our farm animals and who is the one who gathers the livestock up to the barn before Anne’s visit. Wouldn’t you know it! Anne even speaks Spanish and can communicate with our helper better than we can! All of this benefits our pets, of course. They join me in saying “Thank You, Anne”.

“We just wanted to thank you again very much for doing such a great job shearing our alpacas! Your patience and caring nature were very obvious. We appreciated you taking the time to separate the cuts for us. We look forward to having you back again next year”

“Anne has a deep affinity for animals, and genuinely cares for them. Her considerable skill with the shears is most impressive, but her compassion and concern make her invaluable.”

I am happy to provide references to you from the happy animals (and their owners) for whom I’ve sheared.
