COSHOCTON – A different llama and a year of experience helped Allie Mizer achieve success at this year’s llama show.

“The one I had last year didn’t want to walk, but this one cooperated,” she said.

Mizer is a member of the Kamelid Kushers 4-H Club and this is her second year showing llamas.

“I think they (llamas) are really cool,” she said. “I love horses and they are the second biggest thing to horses.”

The llama show was held Oct. 4, at the Coshocton County Fair and Mizer and her llama earned two second places, a first and were named a grand champion.

Another winner at the show was Emma Ward who brought home a first place with her llama.

“I practiced a lot this year,” she said.

Ward also belongs to Kamelid Kushers 4-H Club and this is her second year showing llamas.

“My brother has done it for four years, but I was excited to do it too,” she said. “I like doing the obstacles, but I also just like showing them.”
