Throughout the country and most of the year there are many alpaca shows to in which to participate. Alpacas are judged based on fiber and conformation. They are grouped in classes by type, color and age. Shows are a great way to meet other alpaca owners, share and compare and compete against the best.
There are also many shows, fairs and 4H events in which kids get the opportunity to show off their special animals and receive ribbons and confidence. Preparing for a show and taking care of their animal is a great way for a child to learn responsibility, accountability and accomplishment and of course make new friends.
