Here we are at the Royal Bath & West with our Junior Male Champion Classical MileEnd Andante who also won the Best of British cup – more silverware – excellent. The judge was Mary Jo Smith and on the left of the picture is Jacinta Nastalia of Armitage Insurance who presented the cup. Andante has done very well this season coming first in his class at North Somerset, Devon County and Alpaca Showtime. He was also Reserve Champion White Male Huacaya at North Somerset and Alpaca Showtime. I think he is a very happy alpaca now having been shorn on Saturday and rid of the most enormous fleece. Our white adult female CME Cecilia was Champion Adult Female – the Bath & West is an age championship – whilst CME Cadenza was Reserve Junior Female Champion, the fawn Sarabande Reserve Junior Male Champion and the light fawn Capella Reserve Champion Intermediate Male. Everyone in the show team got a rosette with seven firsts, five seconds and three thirds. Not bad really and our trade stand did well too with lots of people finding out about alpaca yarn for the first time.
