“Hunting Mare – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The accompanying anecdote reads thus: “This hunting Mare was sold by a farmer at Malton to a gentleman, who took her with him to Whitby. On Wednesday morning the Mare was missed from the field in which she had been put, and on the same evening her former owner found her standing at the gate of her old field. In her cross-country gallop of nearly sixty miles she must have had to cross two rivers and a railway.”
