Another great weekend, this time in Cambridgeshire at Alpaca Showtime, hosted by Houghton Hall and jointly organised with The Alpaca Stud and Bozedown. Rebecca and I left on Friday morning in the rain with a very bedraggled show team but by the time we got through all the traffic on our journey the sun had come out and they had blown dry...

The venue was the biggest indoor arena I have ever been in with a great looking show ring and the show was very well organised with a good atmosphere.

There were some amazing trophies for colour Champions and I was thrilled when The Sorcerer won his class and then went on to win Grey Male Champion, which meant we could have one!!! We went off to get our photo taken - it got pretty heavy after a while! Imagine my excitement then when Bonami also won his class and went on to win Champion Fawn Male and we got another one!! Now I can do weight lifting with them!!! Shame we have to give them back next year!

Enigma came first in the Intermediate black females and Macy, Talisman, Dynasty and Bonnie all came 3rd.  A new way to close the show was to have a line-up of all the female Champions and then all the Male Champions and then the Supreme was decided between the winner of those two groups. I was pretty chuffed to have two in the male line-up.

All in all a very good weekend - lots of fun and we were home by 7.30pm and everyone was back in their fields and we were able to flop in front of the TV to watch the hunky Musketeers! Whilst we were away we have been adopted by a female Turkey - she's rather lovely and laying eggs too. Not sure how long she'll stay with us but she's rather cute.

Now I must decide who we're taking to the Heart of England ...
