Although I had already sculpted a head study of the champion Aberdeen Angus, Galawater Bold King, I also wanted to sculpt a full study of a champion Aberdeen Angus. I had seen a splendid Aberdeen Angus – Breed Champion at the Royal Show the previous year, called Rosemead Jerrony. I phoned his owner, Angus Stovold and organised a trip over to Surrey to see him.
The Stovolds are one of Surrey's oldest farming families with records dating back to 1367. The Rosemead Herd of Aberdeen Angus Cattle was established in 1936 by Percy Stovold, who recognized the Aberdeen Angus’ potential on Surrey's light soils. The herd he originally purchased in Perth, Scotland, was hidden from his somewhat sceptical father for two years, in what is now the Refectory Restaurant, Milford, Surrey. His father was duly amazed when the new herd appeared on a tour of English shows, including the Royal, in 1938, winning many of them. So Rosemead Jeronny had quite a pedigree to live up to, but he did not disappoint.
