Dog trials 'one of the best ever'

AFTER two days of cattle dog trialling at Maclean over the weekend, just about all the people who attended agreed on one thing - it was one of the best they'd been to.

Maclean Show Society member and veteran cattle dog trialist, Happy Davis, was one who concurred with that opinion.

"It was probably the best dog trial I had ever been to," Mr Davis said.

"It was well run with a good run of cattle and plenty of good scores."

He said the only downside was the time of the year, as a lot of locals were tied up with cane harvesting.

"It was originally planned for June, but it was too wet and the cattle were too cut about," he said.

Mr Davis said there was something for everyone at the trials.

"We had the novice and maidens right through Saturday, finishing up in the evening," he said.

"In the morning on Sunday we had the bush dog trials for the people who help us out and we went onto the opens, which finished up around 2pm."
