Summary

Full length, left side profile of a chestnut horse in Platt Fields, Manchester. A weir is visible in the background, leading through the lush green land and past a Chinese pagoda. In the distance, Platt Hall can be seen, positioned between dense trees with birds soaring above. The horse stands in the central foreground with large leafed plants and a stream at its feet. The sky is blue with dense grey clouds casting shadows over the scene.
