Our llamas just returned from spending nearly a week at the Clark County fair. Our 4H club was there, and the boys borrowed my llamas for showing. They did great and brought home a lot of ribbons. If I’d thought of it we should have gotten a picture of all the ribbons! The kids qualified to go to State Fair if they want to.
Here they are in Fit & Show:
It was fantastic to see the work the kids put into practicing with the llamas finally pay off. Particularly since they were first year kids and first year llamas! There were a lot of other kids in the junior class, so it was pretty tight competition. The llamas did things for them I really wasn’t expecting them to do. At one point the judge had a tie between the boy using Scoops and one of the other kids, and so she asked them to pick up their llamas foot – and Scoops refused! If only we’d practiced that! We’ll be ready for it next year.
After a week of being in a stall at the fair they were really happy to get back to their own pasture today!
