Alpaca show judge

About Robin Näsemann

Robin Näsemann was born in 1985 in Wuppertal and graduated from high school in 2004 in North London, England. He studied Business Administration in Germany, Ireland and Switzerland, receiving a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science in Economics and Communication. Since 2003, his family has been breeding alpacas near the city of Münster in western Germany (Abolengo de Alpaca). Robin has been working as a breeding suitability screener for the Alpaca Breeders Association of Germany – AZVD (Alpaka Zucht Verband Deutschland e.V.) for more than 10 years. From 2007 to 2009 Robin was an honorary board member of the association. At the end of 2010 he began the AOBA show judge training program, which he successfully completed as a ‘certified AOBA’ (now AOA) judge in 2013. To date, Robin has judged over 20 shows in the USA, Canada, France, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany.
