Mt. Vernon. . . Thoroughbreds
George and Bettina Brown found greener pastures in 1995 when they purchased a 160-acre farm in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, ideal for raising Thoroughbred Race Horses and Angus Beef Cattle.
They named their farm Mt. Vernon as a patriotic head-nod to the road they live on (Vernon Grove Rd) and to the five generations of men in their family named "George Washington Brown."
For the second of two barn quilts on their property, they asked for a custom design that featured a race horse and jockey. The pattern is called "Thoroughbred" and is painted in the red & green colors of their racing silks.
