BRENDAN McIvor used the word "humbled" to describe his reaction to the support from the Eastern Downs branch of the Australian Stock Horse Society which raised $6872 in an auction yesterday.

Mr McIvor and his family were at the annual futurity, maturity, challenge and campdraft on his second weekend home from hospital in Brisbane.

He was injured in a farm accident on March 10.

"I go back to hospital each weekday for another month and will get a prosthetic leg fitted in the next week," Mr McIvor said.

"I want to get back to work at Carey Bros Meats as soon as possible. I have really improved in the past week."

The highest price at the stock horse auction yesterday was $1600 for a filly weanling and $650 for a service fee to Chain Reaction, both donated by the Boyce family.

Mr McIvor said he was grateful to all clubs that had organised fundraising events.

"A special mention to the Boyce family for what they donated," he said.

As well as the stock horse society, the Collegians Junior Rugby League Club held a fundraising day for the McIvor family on Saturday and the Tannymorel Campdraft and Rodeo Committee is planning another campdraft on June 2 with help from Killarney Pony Club.

On Anzac Day, the Warwick Polocrosse Club auctioned a HTC Desire Smart Phone which was donated by Leading Edge Telecoms in Toowoomba to assist Mr McIvor.

It was purchased by Frasers Transport for $1000.
