The return of the South West Riverina Sheepdog Trial Championships has seen competitors from throughout Australia flock to Deniliquin.
The four-day, possibly five-day, event started on Tuesday at Memorial Park and caught the attention of more than 50 families.
Coming from as far as Western Australia are six entrants, including Dave Lacey, pictured with his trusty dogs Akoonah Sherry and Akoonah Dee.
Organiser Brian Harrington said the majority of entrants were from Victoria, with others from South Australia, Queensland and New South Wales.
Fine and sunny weather conditions were ideal to encourage trial participants, who were enjoying the action from the grounds and mingling in the Deni Rovers’ clubrooms.
Hosted by a hard-working committee of community members, this is the first trials to be held in Deniliquin since 2009.
The event has also received support from major sponsors Purtills, Deni Freighters and Rodwells, as well as Ken Crossley who supplied the sheep.
