Bucks County Pronking Pacas at PAOBA

At Pennsylvania Alpaca Owners & Breeders Association (PAOBA) last month in Centre Hall, PA, members of the Bucks County 4-H club, Pronking Pacas, had their competitions in showmanship, obstacles and public relations.

Layla Cotter, of Quakertown, received Intermediate ribbons for 6th in Showmanship, 3rd in Obstacles and 2nd in Public Relations.

David Dutertre, also of Quakertown, received Junior ribbons for 3rd in Showmanship, 4th in Obstacles and 2nd in Public Relations.

Alpaca showmanship classes are like other animal shows in that the handler is scored on how well he/she knew and showed the animal.

The obstacle event demonstrates the alpaca’s ability and willingness to accept training and to work with its handler through a variety of obstacles.

The obstacle course had participants leading their alpacas through a set of challenges, including a jump, a see-saw, running to a stop, jumps and weaving through cones just to name a few.

Public Relations is basically an obstacle course with people also used as part of the obstacle.
