Joe’s dog Brue won the Kelpie Pinball at Casterton 2009. Sharon’s dog, Go Getta sire Futura Ned, won the Stockman’s Challenge.
Royal Auto magazine June 2010 describes Joe as “one of the world’s top kelpie breeders and trainers”. Joe sold 4 dogs for an average of $4000 each at Casterton last year.

Our Enchanted kelpie heads off to Gunbower, Vic
The 22-year-old said he was absolutely thrilled to hear the news.
“The 14-year-old Kelpie we’re using at the moment is getting on a bit and this great news has come just in time so I can’t wait to see her,” he said.
Having already seen Enchanted work both sheep and cattle on FarmOnline, Mr Smith was convinced the dog would be perfect to bring in the dairy cattle at the property of DW, SR and TC McGillivray where he presently works as an apprentice.
In accepting Go Getta Enchanted, Jason thanked the Casterton Kelpie Muster and Rural Press for the promotion, together with Joe Spicer, of the Go Getta Kelpie stud, for donating Enchanted.
Jason is no ordinary apprentice, either, having just won the Victorian Dairy Apprentice of the Year and is now in the running to win the national title, to be announced in coming weeks.
