We attended the 2009 Ohio Alpaca Fest in Columbus the weekend of November 6-7 - yes this is the show which was cancelled and then re-instated. This has always been one of our favorite shows. It was a much smaller show this year. They did not use the show arena and instead had the show rings on carpet in the stalling barn with very poor lighting. Even if the facilities were less than stellar, TFA still had a great weekend. Our brown (of course) juvenile male Suri, TFA Lock and Load, was awarded the Reserve Champion banner. Needless to say, we were thrilled. This was his third show this fall and the first one that had enough animals for a Championship.
He is the progeny of MacGyver's Armed and Dangerous and other Mac kids also had a great weekend! Our thanks to Gail Wasserstein of Andean Vista Ranch for her help in showing him.
