We used Montgomery for 12 years. He produced both top show winners and excellent brood cows for the working herd. His sire was the great show Champion, DH White Gold, and his dam was a quality cow, Drover Hill's Lear-Ghaoth,a female with tremendous longevity. She was 19 years old when her last calf recorded in the herd book.
Montgomery was an incredibly good natured bull. I remember putting a halter on him when he was 9 years old. He hadn't been in a halter since he was a yearling. He stood for the halter to go on, and walked behind me like he had done in every day for the past 7 years. Quite amazing. It says a lot for the bull, but the basic truth is, that is typical of the breed too.
These photos don't do justice to him. He was an incredibly powerful bull, with as straight a hip and top line as you can find. He had excellent feet and legs, a deep, thick body and moderate height.
