Wilson County 4-H Llama Show Feb. 22
Tiffany Anderson and Kytheranialynn Fambrough-Brown practice their quadrants as they work to perfect their showmanship skills for the upcoming county llama show.
The fourth annual Wilson County 4-H Llama Show will be held Saturday, Feb. 22, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the La Vernia Chamber of Commerce grounds, located off U.S. 87 in La Vernia.
The public is invited to watch the kids in action, with both showmanship and performance rounds in novice or advanced obstacle classes.
The youth will be available throughout the show to answer questions about these “farm animals” known for their fiber, hiking abilities, and use as therapy animals.
Llamas will be available in pens for spectators to view and visit with. A special attraction will be baby Clair, a 2-month-old cria, or baby llama. She will be available for visitors -- especially kids -- to meet and learn about llamas from. Visitors also can have photos taken with Clair.
Concessions for both breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase.
A silent auction will be held with nice items to bid on, as well as a few homemade pies.
For more information, contact Susan Leslie, Wilson County 4-H Llama project manager, at 830-401-0819.
