Alpaka show in Ontario, Canada, Oct. 2013
The Rockton World’s Fair animal show, existing since 1852, invited me to judge the alpaca show onsite. With less than 100 alpacas, the show was rather a small but fine one and very well organized. Special was the fact that the first, second and third-place winners received a cash bonus of $50, $35 and $25 (the same applied to the performance and showmanship categories), respectively. I really enjoyed the show. It was a great experience and was the first alpaca show in North America that I judged entirely myself!
