Alpaca Show

Ribbons won at 2011 VAOBA Expo

2011 has been a good year for the alpacas of Peaceful Heart at alpaca shows.  We started the year with multiple first place ribbons from the Mid-Atlantic Alpaca Association (MAPACA) Alpaca Jubilee and Alpaca Owner and Breeder Association (AOBA) National Conference Spin-Offs.  We were particularly pleased with Asa Lee’s ribbons for Highest Scoring Brown Alpaca in both of these large alpaca shows.

We ended the year with Asa Lee’s younger brother Regal Copper continuing his family’s winning tradition at the Virginia Alpaca Owner and Breeder Association (VAOBA) Expo.  Regal won a First Place in the Fleece Show.  Hyppogryff and J Dubs 40 (Dubbie) both won ribbons in the halter and fleece show as well.

Six of our alpacas won ribbons without ever leaving the farm.  We entered 2 ounce samples of fleece from each alpaca in the VAOBA Expo Spin-Off.  All the alpacas we entered did well, but we are especially proud of our consistently fabulous herdsire Powergrid and our lovely Bonnie Alice.  Both won First Place ribbons yet again, eliciting great feedback from the judge on the quality and spinability of their fleece.  You can see pictures and a video of the boys at the VAOBA Expo alpaca show on our Facebook page.
