Attending the shows is very important to us. This gives us a chance to get expert opinions on what we have bred, get some recognition for those alpacas that deserve it and it can help with making decisions about who to breed from.

Shows are very exciting for us because we get to show off our animals, meet the public, mingle with other breeders and spend entire days talking about our favourite subject; alpacas! We attend various shows throughout the year, either showing our animals (A), selling our products (P) or both. In 2017 we will be attending:
