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.
