New Jersey Alpaca Classic
Six of our 4-H members traveled to Logan, NJ for their first “big” alpaca show competition. We were very proud of how well they did. In the Junior Performance class, they took the top four places. Taking Monroe through the obstacles, Sara placed first, Naomi was second, Grace was third and Aiden came in fourth. Mary won the Intermediate class with Monroe.
Five of the kids also elected to try the Showmanship Class, which they had never done, or even seen, before. Sara finished third, Grace came in fifth and Natalie placed sixth in the Junior Division. Mary was second in the Intermediate Division.
Congratulations to a wonderful day of competition.
Here are two videos, the first of Sarah’s blue-ribbon performance and the second of Mary’s.
And finally, don’t forget we are offering art lessons. The winter is a perfect time to learn a new craft such as dry or wet felting, weaving or dyeing.
