Carolina Alpaca Celebration

We just returned from the Carolina Alpaca Celebration.   It was a fun weekend full of alpacas, seeing old friends, and meeting new people.  Wild Bells, Ninja and White Owl attended the show with me, and we shared stalls with Majestic View Alpacas and MacKenzie’s Meadows Alpacas.

We were proud of how well our alpacas did in this large show.  They earned second and third place ribbons in a variety of classes: Full Fleece Halter, Get-of-Sire, Bred & Owned, and Breeder’s Best Three.

Ninja in the ring

Our star of the show was Peaceful Heart’s Ninja, who placed third in a very competitive class of 9 true black alpacas.  Judge Amanda VandenBosch said he was the “total package” with “good substance of bone” and “consistency and evenness” of fiber.

We enjoyed getting to watch not only our three alpacas in the ring, but also former herd members and offspring of our herdsires perform in the ring. Its a Good Life Alpaca Farm did not bring their boys to the show, but their boys did great in the Spin-Off and Fleece Shows.  Sir Galahad did particularly well, winning First Place in both Spin-Off and Cottage Fleece for white alpacas, and also Highest Scoring Alpaca of all the alpacas entered in the Spin-Off.
