It was our third National Show and we enjoy it more and more each time. The show was so well organised and is a credit to Jen and Dean Ford and Paul Haslin – Well done to you and all those who contributed to a Spectacular event.
The standard of alpacas was amazing and it is definitely a vibrant industry to be part of. In addition to the gorgeous halter animals and fleeces, the clothing and alpaca fibre made items were superb. We attended a very enjoyable dinner at Chateau Dore and the alpaca meat was very good.
Goldleaf Vintage Burlesque came 4th in her highly competitive Adult White Female class, the winner of this class went on to win Supreme Champion of the entire show. Burlesque’s fleece won 5th place. Unfortunately our beautiful boys did not get a ribbon this year, again the competition was intense.
All our animals were so well behaved in their pens and mostly in the show ring. Lucian enjoyed his cuddles as usual.
