I bought these glasses at a Salvation Army store yesterday. I liked them because of the thoroughbred horses. And I also liked how there’s a different horse on every glass.
The glasses are obviously from the sixties, and when I came home I looked up the horses on them. It turned out that they’re all The Grand National winners! I think this is very exciting and I’ve watched several videos with them now.
And now I really feel like reading a Dick Francis book!
If you click on the image below, you can see a video from 1960 where Merryman II wins a race at The Grand National! Mr What runs this race too.

PS. Did you know that horses need very little sleep? A horse sleeps on average 2.9 hours a day!
