Description

In a farmyard, a mare dressed as a farm girl kicks the legs of a horse dressed and equipped as though he might be going to a hunt.
The caption reads in the original French: Jamais coup de pied de jument ne fit de mal à un cheval. This proverb has a loose English equivalent in The kick of the dam hurts not the colt.
