It's the Fair

Getting nervous in the Llama Greenway!

We’ve changed our shoes into ones we don’t mind getting wet.  The last obstacle for the llamas is walking through a “raging river.”  It is actually a kiddie pool filled with about 4 inches of water, but it’s enough that we don’t want to squish around the Fair the rest of the day.

The “Experienced Llama” class just finished.  Experience has to do with placing first, second, or third place in a prior Obstacle competition.  Rob and I are nervously awaiting the “Novice Llama” class with adult handlers. We’ve sized up the various tasks, like going under “branches” and over bridges and walking sideways and backwards.  I, for one, am a little anxious.

I’m most nervous about the “branch” for me (I’m not much of a bender) and the backwards stepping for my animal.  I will be taking Napoleon “through the woods.” Rob will be taking Andre.  They are both alpacas.  Shhh.  Don’t tell anyone.  Actually, it’s all good.  Since llamas and alpacas are related, they are allowed to compete together.

Stay tuned!

I am a Clark County Fair Fanatic and eat all things fried during the glorious 10 days of The Fair. I have lived in Clark County since 2004 and consider it the second-best decision of my life. I am married to a great guy named Rob (first-best decision) who graciously carries my stuff and takes my picture every time I eat something at The Fair. We have two indoor cats and lots of deer, rabbits, and coyotes who are kind enough to stay outside.
