Northumberland County Show

Despite the poor weather forecast and some very black clouds the weather was very kind to us today at the Northumberland County Show.

We weren't actually showing animals but were helping out with stewarding and Paul had his usual job on the microphone.  How he manages that always amazes me; it's not a job for me.

We had our eyes closely on the junior white male class as Wheelhouse Alpacas were showing one of Legend of Spartacus', our supreme champion, sons.  He is the first to be shown so we were keen to see what our judge Mary-Jo Smith from Bozedown Alpacas thought to him.  The news was good because Ivory Star (Ivor) came second in the Junior White Male class and went on to win Reserve Junior Male Champion.  Well done Ivor!

We also had a great day selling our knitwear.  It is always good when people can see what we actually use our fantastic alpacas for, and receiving lots of nice compliments is great for morale.

Well done Ivor...sorry I didn't get to catch up. Stayed at home on standby midwife duty and no still births...typical!

Opps that should have read still no births...not a good typo to make there!
