Organisers were pleased with this year’s Lockington and District Camp Draft.
About 400 riders took part in the event at Scurrah Reserve, Lockington, on Saturday and Sunday.
Lockington and District Camp Draft Club president Steve Haydon was happy with how things went.
‘‘It was a great weekend,’’ he said.
‘‘Everybody was pretty happy.
‘‘The weather was really kind.
‘‘The cool change was fantastic for the cattle, horses and competitors.’’
As well as the competitors and their family and friends, Mr Haydon said the event also drew some locals out to watch the action.
‘‘A few locals came and had a look,’’ he said.
‘‘Some people had never seen camp drafting before.’’
Mr Haydon thanked the district farmers and businesses who donated 1000 cattle to be used in the event.
‘‘We have much appreciation for the cattle donors,’’ he said.
‘‘We couldn’t do it without them.’’
Adding to the weekend’s activities was a Shave for a Cure head shave that saw Lockington’s Sheila Watson shave off her locks in front of a big crowd.
She raised more than $1200 for her efforts, with the money going to the Leukaemia Foundation.
