Blue Ribbons

Now that I am officially an alpaca owner Freddy and I decided we need to have a name for our herd.  Okay so we only have one alpaca, but maybe someday Blue will get a friend then we will have a herd.  Either way we decided to name our herd "Muddy Boot Alpacas". Isn't it fun to say Muddy Boot!  So this weekend there was a very big alpaca show up in Syracuse, New York. The Empire Alpaca Trifecta and I entered some of my pictures into the photo contest.  I entered my pictures under my farm name Muddy Boot Alpacas. My sister entered some of her pictures to the contest under Arrow Acres Farm.  The contest only allows you to enter one picture per category per farm.  So how did Muddy Boot Alpacas do at our first contest this weekend....

"Meet the New Girl"
Category- Alpacas Interacting
3rd place

wait it gets better!

"Stealing Kisses"
Category- Black & White
1st Place

"Made in America"
Category- Digitally Enhanced
1st Place

"Keeping Cool"
Category- Color
1st Place & Judges Choice!!!!

So for Muddy Boot's first time in an alpaca competition we came away with 1 judges choice blue ribbon, 3 first place blue ribbons, and 1 third place. I am so excited I just can't stand it!

Of course I have to mention that all the alpacas are at Arrow Acres Farm.  Somehow Blue didn't get into any of them.  Maybe next year Blue.

Oh and my humor shot didn't get any awards, but I hope it gave the judges a good laugh.
