Monty - June 9, 1982 - January 27, 2017
Monty "Banbury Montgomery" was peacefully laid to rest this morning. Many who knew him called him “the unicorn horse”. His large soft eyes and long white lashes along with his sweet personality gave him a mystical quality and it was not unusual to see visitors walk by and then stop and stare. Monty's natural presence and energy was magnetic and irresistable. A gentle stallion, 12 of Monty's foals are currently registered with International Andalusian & Lusitano Horse Association (IALHA). His daughter, Azucara aka Cara, is his last offspring at the farm. Monty was Carol's heart horse and spent all of his 34 years at Canterberry Acres. There will never be another horse like Monty and we mourn his loss. Carol, we send our love and sympathy. Rest in peace, Monty.
