Hi! I'm leasing alpacas from my neighbor down the road for 4H and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for me. My sister and I are going to both bring one gelding to the county fair. They are barely halter trained and we are going to be working with them a lot in the spring. They only live half a mile down the road. What should we work on? I believe there is an obstacle coarse and showmanship class. This is the first year our county is doing alpacas, so the extension office isn't much help. What types of obsacles should we work on? How do we work with them on being calm when touching them? They panic when we touch their legs, body, head, etc. I got my alpaca to finally trust me enough to let me pick some hay out of his fluff on his head. I'm also trying to teach simple commands like walk, stop, and UhUh when he does something wrong. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
