We went down to the Northlands ALPACA Odyssey for the fall Farmfair show this year, with four animals in tow. Entered were Atlas, Rock, Eos and Paz, all of whom were very pleasant, if not very dirty, when we unloaded them after our arrival at Northlands. Of course the two girls just had to lay in their trailer poop pile, however we did manage to clean them up nicely in time for their classes.
Although we had four entered, only Eos placed, taking home a 4th place ribbon, which was quite pleasing in and of itself. Some comments that the judge, Sharon Loner had for us were that Eos wasn't quite as fine as the other competitors (and, considering the amount of pellets Eos snatches from her herdmates at treat time, this isn't surprising) however her talkative and friendly nature proved that Eos had come from a loving home that took wonderful care of her.
We look forward to this new years upcoming spring shows!
