Following its success over the last two years, the Yorkshire Alpaca Show returns to Thirsk Farmers Mart on Saturday, October 15. Entry is free and the popular alpaca showing classes will be going on all day.
Organised by the Yorkshire Alpaca Group (YAG), the show starts at 9.30 am. with some of the top breeders from all over the UK displaying their alpacas like the one pictured left.
Around 120 will compete for rosettes and sashes in an event run under the strict rules and guidance of the British Alpaca Society and presided over by respected judge, Tim Hey.
New classes this year include Junior Handler, Handsomest Boy Alpaca and Prettiest Girl Alpaca. There will be trade stands and lots of information and helpful advice for new and established alpaca owners.
