A STRAY cow was no match for spec­ta­tors at the Mount Perry Breast Plate Cam­p­draft.

The cow es­caped from the live­stock area but quickly met its match when sev­eral horse rid­ers rounded it up and co­erced it back into the pen.

Then it was busi­ness as usual, with a “well done boys” by the an­nouncer and a re­minder to spec­ta­tors to “leave a gate the way you found it”. The week­end saw great weather and some fine horse rid­ing skills.

Cam­p­draft sec­re­tary Anna Din­gle said the com­mit­tee was very happy with the event, which saw 519 first round runs.

“The weather was a win­ner all round and good spir­its were ev­i­dent for the week­end,” she said.

It was typ­i­cal of a Mount Perry event, with great hos­pi­tal­ity and friendly faces greet­ing vis­i­tors around the show­grounds.

The ma­jor­ity of the cat­tle was do­nated by the Haber­mann fam­ily of Eastern Creek at Mount Perry. They were all driven on foot to and from the cam­p­draft.
