Cria Watch 2011: Day 5 / MN Alpaca Expo - Registration Day!

No cria today . . .  but it was registration day for the MN Alpaca Expo!

It was so much fun seeing hundreds of alpacas come through the doors to be registered.

We are showing one alpaca this year in the halter class - our little boy, Lars.  We also entered Bella's fleece (from last year's shearing) in the fleece competition.

Yay!  Bella's fleece took 3rd in her class in the fleece competition!  Yay!

Our stall is all set up . . .   half for us and half for Lars . . .

. . . and Lars is settling in nicely.

We got Lars from a farm in Wisconsin.  The owner's son, Owen, helped to halter train Lars this spring for us.  Of course, Owen had to show us what Lars can do.  (FYI:  Owen is 4 1/2 years old.)

Here are Owen & Lars in action in one of the show rings at the Expo.

They are so cute!

More tomorrow!
