It is time to say "good bye for now" to our great friend S.E. Montgomery. Services will be held at Purcell Chapel, in Bushnell Florida, December 12th, 2015. Viewing at 10-11 and the service at 11:00am. S.E.'s church will be hosting a dinner after the service.
S.E. Montgomery had been around horses for his entire life. Growing up in Tennessee, his father always had working horses. When Montgomery was 20, his trucking business brought him to Live Oak, Florida. Montgomery first entered the world of cutting when he attended his first cutting show. The trucking business eventually took him to Lake Panasoffkee, Fl.
In the 1980's he started cutting and running cattle, and even built his own show barn! His 250 acre ranch became known as "Flying M Ranch." As he started to get competitive in the cutting world, he realized owning a couple good horses would never satisfy him... instead he needed a great horse. When he saw Badger San Doc at a show, he realized she was the horse he'd been looking for. By the end of the show, after a little haggling, Badger San Doc was loaded up onto Montgomery's trailer, and the rest is history! She is one of only a handful of mares to have two offspring competing in the same NCHA Open Futurity Finals. Also, she produced 3 Futurity finalists in three years! All in all, she has produced money-earners nearing 1 million dollars! Most importantly, she is Smart Sugar Badger's dam.
Smart Sugar Badger was an NCHA Open Futurity finalist in 2008, along with the NCHA Open Futurity Champion, Montgomery's San Tule Freckles. In addition to Smart Sugar Badger and San Tule Freckles, Montgomery bred and raised multiple futurity finalists as well as Redneck Yachtclub (LTE $525,000+).
S.E. loved his family, his horses and he loved the Lord with his whole heart! He was a great man, great friend, and he will be missed dearly!
