  Prince Harry rounds up cows in Oz
Updated 27 November 2003, 11.29
Prince Harry rounds up cattle
Prince Harry has demonstrated his "jackeroo" skills by rounding up cattle on an Australian farm.

He rode with five other cattle-hands on the 40,000-acre Tooloombilla station in southern Queensland.

He said he had learnt a lot during his two months on the farm and described Australia as "a great country."

During his stay he has learnt how to handle cattle, repair damaged fencing and general farm maintenance - basic skills for a jackeroo.

He was riding a chestnut-coloured horse called Guardsman as he posed for journalists on Thursday.

He rode his horse alongside the cows as they were brought in from the edge of the property, and at one stage galloped ahead to open the cattle pen.

A short statement from him said: "I have had a great time working out here, meeting people and learning a bit about how to be a jackeroo and, of course, the rugby was absolutely fantastic."
