Spectators and students of the St Ursula’s Yeppoon year 12 formal turned their heads to see Skye “ride” in on the back of a bullock.

Students weren’t able to have a partner due to COVID-19 restrictions so the bullock stood in place for the walk through.

Affectionately known as Norman, the bullock comes from 4 Mile farm at Gracemere.

Norman has previously made headlines when he went in for a coldie at the Gracemere Hotel decorated in Christmas decorations in December last year.
