LA VERNIA -- Almost 30 participants are standing taller and enjoying unusual accolades, after the first-ever Wilson County Llama Show held March 5 in the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce arena.

Spearheaded by Susan Leslie with Leslie Lane Llamas, this first show highlighted how far one small group can take a dream. Last September, a number of youth expressed interest in showing llamas during the Wilson County “Get Acquainted with 4-H” event in the Wilson County Show Barn. The novices practiced with Leslie and her daughter, Anna Reese, for several months, learning about llamas and alpacas and working with the animals.

In addition to the kids showing their skills with the llamas, the event included demonstrations by members of the San Antonio Handweavers, drawings, and lots of fun.

“Everyone had a great time,” Leslie said after the show, adding that there was “good attendance in the stands; the kids were amazing and the llamas cooperated as they should have.”

She’s hoping this is the beginning of a regular event.

The participants in this first-ever show gained experience in the show ring, place ribbons, and a little swagger in their steps. A few even carried home some hardware in the shape of trophies and buckles for their efforts.
