Manilla Show Challenge 2015
Good Job by big Joel and
Oakley  !!
Good cattle that worked well but made for a challenge.

The cattle were big , sappy weaner heifers. A nice line , you would be glad to have at home. They were fresh.
Joel and Oakley were second team out, and really made it look like the challenge may be a bit too easy.
l even made that comment to Joel as he walked of the course !! However , the heifers had just enough  in them to test everyone
somewhere around the challenge. Dan Matthews and Spider loomed in on the lead, but fell just short. Then, after a hard days
mustering, Lincoln Brown and Henry arrived in time for their run. A carefully managed run , with a good grip on the heifers saw
them join the place getters.
Local winner with a hard fought , but completed run was Tony Greenslade with his dog , Shady
