On Saturday, 4th April, Bob intended to visit the North West Alpaca Group (NWAG) Championships.
However, his attendance status changed from "visitor" to "handler"!
This change of status occured for a variety of reasons,
Sufficient to say that the challenge was readily accepted, and he set off early in the morning to travel to Carlisle for the event.
It was a great day. I now know with more, and more certainty that this is part of the life that I want.
It was so much fun to be part of the activity with all the breeders - to be there as more than a spectator.
My first visit to the show ring was with "Prima Sebastian", in the junior black male class.
Sebastian got a 4th place rosette.
Then in the Junior Female - White class with "Velvet Hall Caol Ila"
Note: how both Bob & Caol Ila are in step in the photo below :-)
Jean predicted that we would have the "walk of shame", however, despite the abundance of paddock in her fleece, the judges awarded her a 5th place rosette.
