Those fleeces are off and hopefully skirted by now which means there’s no room for excuses as the Alpaca Association of Ireland prepares to hold its first ever All Ireland Fleece Show at Tullamore on August 12!
This is a perfect opportunity to get an experienced judge’s comments on your fleeces, especially for those breeding females that weren’t able to attend this year’s halter shows. Of course, it’s also a great reason to hone your skirting skills – and as part of the prestigious Tullamore Agricultural Show, a wonderful day out is promised for anybody wishing to attend and see those lovely fleeces up close.
A show schedule and entry form is below. Please note that alpaca owners in Northern Ireland cannot enter the show online – registration must be done manually using the attached form which should be sent along with your fleeces and payment of €10 per fleece to Hushabye Farm, Moneyquaid, Killeigh, Co. Laois to arrive NO LATER than 25th July 2018.
