The Heart of Dixie Llama and Alpaca Show will be held September 16 and 17, 2006 at the Agribition Center, 4925 Moores Mill Road. Huntsville, AL 35811. It is located on the Northeast side of Huntsville on Moores Mill Road between Hwy 72E and Winchester Road (between the two sets of railroad tracks.) The Halter classes begin at 8:00 AM Saturday morning with performance classes starting at 8:00 AM on Sunday.
There is no charge for admission and the public is invited to watch the classes and meet the llamas and their owners. We will have farms from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee represented.
Llamas and alpacas make great companion animals as well as providing a wonderful fiber for spinning and weaving. They can be used for public relations, visiting schools, libraries, retirement centers and even birthday parties. Llamas are used to carry packs and pull carts. The cart driving classes will be Saturday evening.
