The Alford Bull
The land that the bull is positioned on was donated by Mr Charles P Mathers, Farmer Meikle Endovie Alford. Mr Mathers unfortunately died 2 months before the unveiling of the bull which was done by HRH Prince Charles. Also present was the Queen Mother.
Wiliam McCombie(1805 -1880) won 1st Prize at the Paris Exposition in 1878 with his Aberdeen Angus breed. Perhaps this statue might be considered to represent his most famous bull, 'Black Prince'.

Incidentally, another statue of an Aberdeen Angus bull can be seen in Morpeth, Northumberland, over the entrance to a shopping mall. It was made by Judy Boyt. It has been called 'Black Prince'.
