The scene is set in a stable, which has three working horses. The horses are large and strong with shiny coats. The straw on the floor creates a bright setting in an otherwise dark background. The appealing quality of Elsley's paintings were easily understood and presented a cosy, idealised world of happy smiling children and their animals. Elsley displayed much warmth and affection for his subjects and the sentiment in his art gave great pleasure and comfort to ordinary people.
