Holme Grove Prokofiev, a 17-year-old graded Trakenhner Stallion was chosen after photographer George Brooks was commissioned by the bank to find trademark look horse in 2011.

Susan Attew, of Holme Park Stud, said: “We are thrilled that our stallion, Holme Grove Prokofiev, is the new face of Lloyds Bank.

“It was only yesterday (2nd April 2012) that the news finally came through from the photographer that his photos had been chosen and they had already used the first photograph on the Lloyds Annual accounts online!”
