Alpacas at 4-H Fair

John decided to take Chinella to the Fair this week instead of Orion (Slammy). He can reach around her head to show her bite to the Judge and Slammy has grown considerably so that it's quite a reach.....and as it turned out, the judge didn't even require this.
John and Chin did extremely well and had a super time. The only thing that Chin refused to do was to lift her foot for him.
All my information is second hand from Beth because I wasn't able to be there. Smitty (husband) had a very serious surgery that day (Monday) and is still hospitalized.
We are hoping he will come home tomorrow (Friday).

I hope your husband recovers fast! :)

And I agree with the previous comment- John looks so professional and looks like he really knows what he's doing. (And Chinella is such a cutie!)

Hopefully Smitty is home today and on the road to recovery. He has those sheep depending on him.

Let me know if you need anything.
