Westmorland County Show

We had a very early start this morning to ensure we got to the show ground on time, 3.45am the alarm went off. Thankfully everyone loaded into the trailer without any issues despite the fact the internal light wasn't working and it was pitch black.

It was a good day, with 110 animals entered into the show it was a great turnout. Paul took Sienna into the ring where she was awarded 1st place Intermediate Brown Female.
I had the pleasure of taking Lualeni into the ring. This was a very close class, we were in the ring for ages, in the end we came away with third place.
I also took our stud Gianmarco's Masterpiece into the ring. Paul was supposed to be taking him in but he was too busy eating an ice cream. What a result he was awarded first place, his fleece is fantastic mind you so well deserved.
It was nice to see Horatio and Aodhfin at the show, their new owners were showing them. Aodhfin saw me as soon as I arrived and we exchanged kisses. Horatio is much more independent and was happy just to glance in my general direction. There was far too much going on to pay me too much attention. Horatio did well for his new owners, Lavender Bee Alpacas, and he got 2nd place - well done H man!
