JUDGES FOR 2021
AOA Certified Judges Sharon Loner (judging males) and Dianna Timmerman (judging females) will be judging the Regular Fleece Show. Neither of these judges need introduction, for they have been part of judging Suri alpacas for many years, both in the halter ring and in the fleece room. Not only are they both certified, long standing AOA judges, but they also are certified International judges!
