“My Grandfather, Valentine”


Description from Breezy Chick aka Bree: This one is for my Grandfather. His name was Valentine and he lived an amazing life as an international jokey. His great talent and career saw him ride and live in India, Africa and England (he was born in Broken Hill Australia). He rode in the English Derby and also Australia's own Melbourne Cup. I was always so proud of him and used to tell the girls I rode with at pony club about his travels and show photos. One of his many great achievements was marrying my beautiful Nanna, Lorraine. A very special lady, who is very loved by our very large family. Today is the 4th anniversary of my grandfathers death, 17th Feb 2006. He is missed and my thoughts are with him and my Nanna today.

    Beautiful pick and what a great story! I love the masculine color palate that still has a softness and an exotic beauty.
