Best In Show: Salamanca Girl Competes In Va. Alpaca Show

Pictured is Aly Hill of Salamanca and her alpaca “Indy” who won first place and Best of Show in the fiber class recently at the Virginia Classic Alpaca Show in Lexington, Va. Aly is the 10-year-old granddaughter of Sue and Paul Mager of Mager Mountain Alpacas in Little Valley. In all, the Magers entered six juvenile alpacas, winning two first-place awards, seven second-place awards, one third-place award, a fourth-place award and a fifth-place award as well as the Best of Show. It was Aly’s first time showing alpacas. She was joined by her sister, Andie Hill, 14, who has been showing for six years. Aly was present when “Indy” was born and helped him get his first meal from his mother, so they have a unique connection. She named him “Indy” after watching “Raiders of The Lost Ark” the night before.
