21 March 2022     British Alpaca Society     BAS Board

So much has happened on our farm since my last blog. I don’t even know where to start… so I will keep it short and very sweet.

I had the pleasure of travelling to the Netherlands last weekend to attend the Alpaca Association Benelux Spring Show!

It is always exciting to meet old friends and new at alpaca shows and this show was no different!

The organisation was impeccable and the atmosphere was electric after such a long break from showing.

I spent two days ring side deliberating which alpacas I wanted to have a quick look at before I left for the airport.  I didn’t get a chance to get hands on with everything I would have liked, but what I did see, definitely didn’t disappoint.

The weekend has got me even more excited to visit the BAS National Show, where I look forward to catching up with more old friends… and new ones!

It takes a huge effort to get shows organised. All volunteers should get well deserved gratitude. The hard work they put in, allows show goers to have a thoroughly enjoyable time.
