Just a poor picture of a very good bull!   Amateur photographers need to remember this as these kind of images stay around forever and give good cattle a bad press.

what was good about him.


he has no bone, no gaskin, no neck, no quarter, he's sheathy, neck comes out low from his withers, hip seems short. he has a lot of volume for how short his front and rear end is, he's very level topped. maybe the picture is when he's older? I don't remember seeing a lot of shorthorn bulls that looked like him, or any bull for that matter.

There are better pics of the bull, but they are hard to find. I believe Oakview dug this one up for us at one time or another. I think it gives a little different perspective on the bull.

If I can find it, I have the page saved out of the old shorthorn mag that used the original picture. I believe it talked about his performance figures.

Columbus was a better bull than is shown in this picture, for the times. He seemed to really work on some bloodlines popular in that era, and worked very well on Super Flag daughters. As was the case with most milking Shorthorn bulls, his daughters were better than his sons. I do remember a couple very good Columbus sons. I purchased a Columbus son at the Regina Bull Sale in the early 80s that was probably one of the best bulls I have ever owned. The Crestdale herd at Dysart, SK had some Columbus daughters in their herd that were pretty amazing cows then and would be today as well. They were apple smooth with perfect udders and adequate size. They produced very well for them. One of these cows still ranks in my mental list of top 10 cows I have ever seen. I remember taking Barry Jordan from Waukaru there, many years ago. He offered them some huge dollars for a couple cows there and they would not sell them. As we left their farm, he said that he had just seen 3 of the very best Shorthorn cows he had ever seen in his lifetime.
There were far poorer sires being used when Columbus was alive and there are lots of poorer bulls than him being used today.

Is a trail head like a head waters? From the clothes style.......I'd say from the 70's.

Tough to tell from that angle.  Got another pic?  He looks like a red necked roan with his tail done up in a ball.  Weren't many of those red neck roams that won in the era this pic seems to have been taken.  If it's a North American bull I'd guess young Irish Pride.  If the pic is taken somewhere in somewhere in South America I'd guess it's a Tribune son in the late 80's.  Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

Guy at the table has a ball cap as do some in the crowd, showman has a cowboy hat, and another fellow standing in front of the bull has a scotch cap with the fuzzy ball on top.  The other guy at the head of the bull has a driving cap, but he appears to be an outlier in the headware department.  Going to guess this is a North American show.  Unfortunately can't read the banners on the table.
