Enchanted, the black and tan kelpie which thousands of Rural Press readers have been keen to win, has been won by a dairyfarmer from Gunbower just south of the Murray River in Victoria.The coupon Jason Smith sent in was drawn out and announced as part of the Casteron Kelpie Muster last weekend.

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.
