The French Alpaca show 2011, organised by Alpaga Developpment, was held at the beginning of April in Salbris, just North of Vierzon. Godswell Monty, our fine light fawn stud male, was awarded Reserve Champion by alpaca judge Matt Lloyd.
In all we took 7 alpacas to the show which was attended by 160 alpacas from Spain, Belgium and France. They all won rosettes, with three winning their classes. We were very please with the results and bear testament to our breeding the selection programme.
We were lucky to have the help of a good friend, Michael Corbett who hauled our trailer to the show and back. Our Toyota had just blown an engine and was in dock. We are pleased to say that it is now being repaired and we will be back to normal shortly.
