We did well, and achieved my goal of not missing any classes since it was hectic to get 13 animals into the ring. Nearly all ribboned, and here were the highlights:
Gallantry (above) took a 1st in the beige juvenile male class.
Jolly Mon won 2nd in dark fawn yearling males, the 2nd youngest out of 15 in the class!
Optimist and Triton (two Michelangelo sons), took 2nd and 3rd in a huge white yearling class (Magical's male won the class and went on to Color Champion).
It was certainly not our best showing ever, but it's always tough at a big show in Ohio. We'd like to congratulate Al and Dawn Fox of Chardon Alpaca Ranch, buyers of our SSF Peruvian Starbright, as she took the Res. White Female Championship!
We had such a good time going out to dinner on Saturday night with our Ohio friends, something we don't always get to fit in at a show. That's one of the biggest bonuses of the alpaca business- the great friends we have made all over.
And... we are still waiting on Eyecatcher's cria!
