¿Cómo se llama tu llama?

4-H Llama Showmanship Rules

• You should dress neat and clean.
• Don't wear other logos or emblems, or a name tag.
• Don't wear flashy jewelry ... show your llama, not yourself.
• Be courteous and show good sportsmanship at all times.
• You may use soft voice commands with your llama.
You are not supposed to touch your llama at any time except to smooth messed up wool, or assist the judge during inspection.
• Don't be distracted by anything or anyone outside the show ring.
• Be confident and stay "up" all the time, even if you don't feel like it.
• Be alert to the judge, keep your eye on him/her and keep smiling!
Your llama should be clean and well groomed.
• Make sure your llama's toenails are trimmed.
• Halters and leads need to be clean, in good repair, and well fitting.
Respect your llama. You may be dismissed from the show if you jerk your llama, become angry, or otherwise mistreat him/her in the ring.
