Visit to the National Alpaca Show

As the Warwick show ground is only about 50 minutes away from us, I thought I would pop up to the BAS National Alpaca Show and see what was happening (and what I was missing out on!!)

I have got to say after some experience from pony showing classes when my daughter was yonger and all the bitching, back stabbing and favouritism, I have never fancied venturing into any showing classes ever again!!

I was quite surprised, it all looked very relaxed and everyone seem to be quite friendly. Even the alpacas didnt seem to be too stress or unhappy. With the worry of TB and desease spreading, it was nice to see the distenfectunat mats going into the show area, and the spacing between the pens, although there is still seemed quite a lot of close contact between some alpacas in the show ring, but not sure if this a problem as have no experience of this.

Only got to see a few classes,as I had loads to do today, but I was a bit diasppointed in the number of suri entries (think some of my girls could have given them a run for their money LOL)

So came away feeling, well actually I maybe doing something right with my girls, Its good to see what you are aiming for, although I know this was a drop in the ocean for the range of quality alpacas within the UK. Didnt get chance, but it would have been nice to have a bit of a rummage and feel of those lovely fleeces.

While there I met up with a lovely couple who had visited us a few week ago and who are hoping to have some pet boys very soon, they are in the process of buying a new home for themselves and hopefully their new pet boys, I wish them all the best and hope their move goes smoothly and happens very quickly for them.

Well thats it for tonight, its been yet another very busy day, I'm very tired, its raining heavy outside so will be good for the grass, and my bed is calling.

So Good night everyone.
