Animals still draw a crowd
One of the key pillars of the Cobram Show throughout its history has unquestionably been animals.
Cranellie Jasper was declared winner of the shetland pony stallion class, as well as champion stallion and supreme champion shetland at the pony exhibit on the Saturday.
Cranellie Jasper then competed against six other breeds of horses and ponies who were the winners of their respective breed classes.
It went on to be declared either supreme champion or champion, beating all challengers to be awarded the Grand Supreme Champion Led Horse or Pony of the 2018 Cobram Show.
That award was kindly sponsored by the Bachetto family of Cobram.
Cranellie Jasper is owned by Kevin and Donna Irvine, who have a shetland pony stud at Yarroweyah. The couple has been breeding Shetland ponies for more than 45 years.
Mrs Irvine is an internationallyaccredited Shetland pony judge and ponies from the stud are multiple Australian Royal Show championship winners in led, saddle and harness.
Other notable awards handed out included best large dog, while the hoof and hook competition made its return to this year’s show after a long absence.
In last week’s edition of it was published the Cobram Lions Club, Barooga Lions Club, and Cobram Cricket Club put on barbecues at the Cobram Show. It was Strathmerton Lions Club and CobramYarroweyah United Cricket Club.
