Recently, I acquired a selection of glass plate negatives. This is one of them. I think it was taken around 1905 and depicts a groom with one of his charges. What I cannot understand is why this white horse was posed in this way? Is it normal? For that matter, what sort of horse is it? It seems quite small. Are there any equestrian-minded people out there who would be prepared to offer an opinion? Click twice on the image for a really close-up look.
