    Shows a 'Excursion Tourist' and a 'Facetious Rustic' looking into the distance where they observe a tree behind which stands an animal that looks like it comprises two rear ends of horse joined together (it is merely two horses standing face to face, but with their front ends obscured by the tree). The tourist thinks he sees an 'Extra'or'nary cre'char', while the rustic boasts that the animal was bred on 'this 'ere wery fa-arm'.
