We managed to get little Barney into the ring for the junior fawn class but he was up against it, there were two classes of eighteen. Thirty six little fawn boys, he never stood a chance.
Overall we had a splendid time and are very proud of our little show team. Considering we only own sixteen alpacas we couldn't have hoped for much more.
We met and talked with a lot of people, I will only mention a few. It was good to see Nigel and Eve, mystery blog readers, but Rosemary where were you?
It was lovely to welcome Ginny into the Patou herd as an honorary member and it was good to catch up with the Debbie and Paul from Barnacre and to meet Felicia from Popham. It was also lovely to hear from our leader and his lovely wife about their move to Yorkshire (Sue did turn up on Friday, she does exist, one day you will meet her, I promise) and great to see Olav and Connie from Norway with pictures of the cria born to a girl we sold them. It was also good to see Roger and Mary from Snowshill and see how well little Minna has grown.
Last but not least it was, as always, a pleasure and privilege to be amongst the Inca tribe.
Roll on the SWAG spring show because the mighty Patou is up and running!
