Shows a veterinary surgeon and a 'Proprietor of Quadruped' near a horse standing outside its stable. The veterinary surgeon, who drops his aitches, deals with the horse's 'queer' legs by asking the proprietor, 'Do you 'ack 'im or do you 'unt 'im?'. After hearing the proprietor explain that he sometimes hunts the horse but uses him as a hack, the surgeon explains that the affliction is caused not by the 'unting' but by the ''ammer, 'ammer, 'ammer, along the 'ard 'igh road'.
