Next item of discussion was General Rules for
ILR-SD. There was discussion of non-registered non-breeders
showing in halter classes. It was decided that
Non-ILR registered or llamas without
an ILR listing number may show in the Performance, Fiber,
Showmanship, Youth divisions or other optional classes only
after obtaining an ILR Recording Number. There will be an annual

halter committee allow at the discretion of show management, a
