HoEAG Autumn Fleece Show 2015

The HoEAG Fleece show 2015 was again an outstanding success with the maximum of 240 entries, making the show the largest in Europe. The fleeces were judged by Mr Nick Harrington-Smith, apprenticed by Jo Bridge and Mr Tim Hey, apprenticed by Viv Darcy. The judges and apprentices worked tirelessly for 2 whole days, eventually crowning the Supreme Huacaya Champion to Merrifield Louis Vuitton, owned by Ms Shirley Isseyegh and the Supreme Suri Champion to Backyard Meimo, owned by Mr Jacob Keen. Best British Huacaya went to Honeyfield Simply Sizzling, and Suri to Backyard Gabrielle.On the Sunday, we had our usual open day with refreshments, giving members and alpaca breeders the opportunity to see the winning fleeces on display; to discuss their fleeces with the judges and then a presentation was given by Richard Wilson from Australia, on the computer software package “Alpaca Manager”, which was very informative.
