Princess Jasmine, Prince Naveen, Bella and Romeo all got a day out at the Tauranga A& P Show 2015. The New Zealand Alpaca Association sponsored a stand and four local breeders provided alpacas for children (and a few adults!) to lead around.
Prince Naveen was a legend and happily went around in circles for the whole day. The others were rotated to give them a break. Princess Jasmine turned her nose up at the whole affair but at least provided something beautiful to look at!
It is a fantastic way of promoting the alpaca industry as a whole. With well chosen halter-friendly alpacas it creates both a story and a photo opportunity that you know will be talked about, Facebooked and Tweeted!
And I think Prince Naveen will make somebody a wonderful pet. He is now officially bomb proof!
