For the first time we ventured out of our county and travelled all the way to York to attend the Yorkshire Alpaca Group show at York Auction Centre. We decided to travel over the day before taking 3 of our boys to show, leaving them overnight at the auction centre. They were all snug in their pen with plenty of hay.
The next morning after an early breakfast we travelled back to the auction centre to start the day, giving the boys their breakfast and getting ready for the show, meeting up again with a lot of old friends and making a lot of new friends too, the alpaca family is a friendly one.
It was a long but enjoyable and very informative day, you learn a lot at these shows and we had to travel back home 2 1/2 hours straight after the show eventually getting home at 9pm.
The whole experience was well worth it because beyond our expectations we did fantastically well, we are so pleased with our little show team.
The results are:
Little Eskrigg Quattro - 1st place in Adult Grey Male & Champion Grey Male.
Wreay Syke Carmelo - 1st place in Intermediate Brown Male & Reserve Champion Brown Male.
Almapacas Icarus - 3rd place in Intermediate White Male.
