Panel 03 - Signature panel (Shoeing a horse)
Description:
The horse is confined within some kind of open-framed stall and is further restrained at the head end by a man holding a halter rope and some savage-looking serrated tongs (gelding irons?). Another man (bottom) appears to be removing an old shoe, while a third (whose head is a later replacement) has lifted the other hind leg to attach a new shoe.
