2017 Pa. Farm Show
On Tuesday, Jan 10, four of our 4-H Alpacateers kicked off the 2017 season at the 101st Pa. Farm Show. The kids worked hard, putting in many hours in Nov. and Dec. and their effort paid off.
Grace won her second straight Intermediate Showmanship blue ribbon after the group had to go through a second round of competition because of two sets of ties the first go-round. By virtue of winning, Grace was eligible to compete for Grand Champion against all the other age-group champs. She came up a wee two points short of taking home an alpaca trophy. In the same class, Sarah placed fourth.
In Junior Showmanship, Naomi finished fourth and Annabelle came in sixth.
The Obstacle competition didn’t go as well as it could because Dagger and Chevy didn’t cooperate despite patient and creative urges from their handlers. Grace came in fourth; Sarah, fifth; and Naomi was fourth.
Annabelle had better luck with Channing as the two turned in a great performance, placing third in the Junior age group.
With the serious stuff behind them, all four teamed up in a fun Costume Class. Channing had never before worn clothes (and to be sure she wasn’t real happy about wearing them then).
But with a little coaxing from her team, she was ready to go to a party.
Adopt-an-Alpaca (or a goat or a sheep)
Visitors to our farm have often remarked that they would love to own their own alpacas, but for one reason or another were unable to.
As a response to those people who love the animals but can’t own their own, we are offering an adoption program.
You can choose which alpaca you would like to adopt and for a fee of $20 you will receive the following:
- Updates on your alpaca’s health, weight and activities (such as shows it may enter or markets it might visit).
- An 8×10 photo of you and your alpaca.
- A copy of your alpaca’s National ARI registry certificate.
- An alpaca finger puppet.
- Visitation rights. Give us a call when you would like to come out and see your alpaca. You can even take him or her for a walk.
- Help in the shearing of your alpaca and receive a sample of its his or her fiber.
The adoption program is valid for one year.
To choose your animal, you can look at them on our website. Just click Our Girls and Our Boys to see all of the alpacas or come to the farm and choose one in person. If you are interested, please give us a call, click on the red link below, fill out the application and send it to us.
