Saying Goodbye to an Old Soul: Lionheart's Connagher

Today we had to say good-bye to one of our oldest (19yrs) Herdsires, Lionhearts Connagher.

This male was a gentle sole except when it came to competition for the females. He considered our whole female herd his herd. This was true up till the end. We purchased Connagher 10 years ago from Crescent Moon Ranch. They told us then that this 9 year old male was something special, and believe me he was. At the age of 19 Connagher still ranked in the top 1% of EPD's for AFD, SD, SF, and %>30. He was in the top 25% in Mean Curivature and top 10% in medulated fibers. His mark was truly lasting fineness. If we could wish him back to good health believe me we would. Right now we wish him green pastures with lots of females. Bye, Bye good buddy.
