1880 – A Clever Horse


“A Clever Horse” comes from the 1880 edition of “Little Folks”, published by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co.  It is accompanied by the following anecdote: “As a further well-authenticated instance of equine cleverness, we may allude to the case in which a horse has been noted to slip his head out of the halter and to withdraw the bolt of the stable-door, and then to go some distance to a field. After enjoying himself in the open air for a time, he would return to the stable a bolt the door. It is of course, probable that he had been in the habit of doing this for a considerable period before he was found out, and that when his trick was first discovered it was not taken notice of until each separate detail had been carefully noted.”

The quality and detail of the images in this publication are such that we are able to offer this image in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
