The official opening and crowning of the Blacktown Show Young Women of the year, previously known as the Blacktown Showgirl Quest with the Mayor Cr. Tony Bleasdale OAM at the 2022 show, welcoming everyone to the show.
Ras’s working & high jumping dogs will be at this year’s show with demonstrations of not only man’s best friend’s amazing ability to handle and musterstock but also you can bring your own pooch along for the high jumping contest.
Kylie & Darren Adams, both successful competitors in cattle dog trialing, will have their dogs on hand and explain some of their training techniques and how & why working dogs are used on farms around Australia every day.
The dogs used are known as New Zealand short haired collies (think Footrot flats) and bred solely for their knack to control all kinds of livestock, from sheep & goats to cattle & the ducks that will be used today.
The light hearted yet informative demonstration starts with basic breaking-in methods through to actually working a flock of ducks within meters of the crowd with two dogs working as one to manoeuvre the ducks under the control of their master. At the end of each show Darren & Kylie will bring the dogs out into the crowd so as the young & old alike can get up close and have a pat with these amazing hounds.
Once again you are more than welcome to come up and say Gday for a ‘Pat & Chat’ after the show.
The Blacktown City Show “Search for a Star” Talent Quest, which commands centre stage on Sunday has uncovered many talented contestants in the past who have been able to follow their dreams, such as Lorenzo Rossitano, a tenor who has performed at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre and appeared in the Sydney Harbour Australian Day Celebrations in 2021 prior to the fireworks on National TV. Another is Rachael Fahim, a Country singer who was named Star Maker of the year at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
This year has uncovered many more talented contestants who we believe will go on to bigger and better things.
