Hawkes Bay Show

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Labour Weekend Рa long weekend for us here in NZ Рpreceded by the Hawkes Bay Show. We took a selection of young alpaca, and came home with 3 ribbons. Cracker took a 5th in the Junior White class, which we were thrilled about, not only because any ribbon in a white/light fawn class is an acheivment, but because the Judges critique mirrored our own opion of him Рits always good to hear you are on the right track when assessing your own alpacas! Holly Anna won a 2nd place in the junior black class, and our beautiful grey boy, Eclipse won his Intermediate class. We then returned home to a weekend of beautiful sunshine, and a chance to catch up on some farm tasks.

 

The National Show

Monday, November 1st, 2010

The National Show has been and gone. Liz and I took our show team, and came home with a couple of ribbons, a 3rd for Eclipse and a 6th for HollyAnna. While these might appear to be minor placings, a ribbon of any sort is an acheivement at a National Show, so we were very pleased with these results.
