‘‘The Cobram Toy Library kept the triallers and spectators well fed each day, with the proceeds going to the Cobram Toy Library,’’ event secretary Denise Doherty said.

And the tireless four-legged competitors weren’t forgotten — dog food manufacturer Hypro Australia donated a pallet of DogPro Working Dog.
The trial, on the same site as the annual Cobram Campdraft, came together with hard work and generosity from local businesses.

The Barooga Sports Club also pitched in, donating the use of a golf cart that saved some weary legs.
