Packing all the fun in at Alpaca fun day

It sure was a family fun day at the Cornerstone Alpaca Day.  Hundreds turned up for the annual event, held in Gordonton.

First off, there were alpacas.  Lots of them.  They completely upstaged Lord and Lady Black (two locals who offer Victorian games) and were given plenty of treats.

There was face painting –

Lady Black’s favourite dentist, David Blom, was there too!

(Ok, he runs the place with wife Sonja when he’s not busy being a dentist…)  Alpacas and fun.  What’s not to like?  Thanks team alpaca!
