The 2013 show is dedicated to Dr. Art Kennel. The recipient of this dedication is someone who has had an impact on the industry; someone who has helped promote llamas in a positive manner, someone who supports the industry as a whole, not just their area of interest, and someone who has committed themselves to improving the industry for llamas and for llama owners.


Thank you in advance for your sponsorship and support of the
ILR Show Division International Gathering of Friends and Champions.
We look forward to enjoying llamas with everyone
 at The Gathering in June.
