The Show Season
Why does it always rain at Agricultural Shows?
Together with our friends from West Webburn Alpacas, we have again contracted to show alpacas and alpaca products at a number of Shows around Devon.
So far we have "done" Totnes (rained!), Yealmpton (rained) and North Devon (dry!) - but we were indoors in the Fleece Show marquee. This week we are at Chagford (rain is forecast) and Moretonhampstead (heavy rain AND high winds foecast). Around the Shows, in each case the weather has been great. I think Big G has it in for us.
We have noticed a decrease in attendance numbers this year with lots of visitors having locked wallets. However, we have noticed a real increase in interest in alpaca ownership after last years dire weather - so maybe George Osborne's optimism is justified after all!
