.It was a show only for animals up to two years old so the usual suspects were left behind and we took our four remaining tiddlies from last years crop.
Looking far from resplendent in their debri impregnated fleeces our three huacayas were sure to win the scruffiest alpaca class! Only Cappucino the suri had managed to keep herself presentable for the occasion.
The classes were small so the chances of bagging a rosette were good. Imran and Indiana got a 5th and 2nd.
Cappucino was awarded champion fawn suri and probably our most pleasing result was Izzam who took a 1st place in the junior whites in a split class of twelve,despite being a little sod and refusing to stand still for the judges inspection.
Tim Hey did the judging and gave an interesting informal chat to all the entrants after the show.
This was followed by a buffet dinner and a fashion show in the somewhat unglamorous setting of the adjacent hall used for the show cattle. Linda Hitchcocks alpaca garments were stunning and varied and beautifully presented by the models only marred by the jeering of a small group of inebriated young cattle farmers and the introduction of a cow onto the catwalk.
