Well, after five years of keeping and breeding alpacas, we’re finally taking the plunge and entering two of our boys into the junior category at an agricultural show in Somerset. Exciting and scary, as I’ve never done this kind of thing before.
Susan has been trying to persuade us for some time now, and I’ve finally relented. One of last year’s cria – Emrys – is such a fantastic little boy, who I think might have a shot at a rosette. Fabulous fleece, looks great, very good genetics. So, I’m about to start halter training him and Rhodri for showing in May. I’ll be going down there with Susan anyway, who’s an old hand in the show ring.
Whatever happens, it’ll be an experience!
