The horse motion photographs which didn't make the cut - in colour tinted form.
There was once a long-standing debate over whether all 4 hooves of a horse were off the ground simultaneously in a gallop or trot. In the Victorian era, the technology was finally developed which allowed Eadweard Muybridge to settle the question once and for all. He went on to produce famous books from his photographs of animal motion.
This design features the type of horse snapshots which I imagine didn't make the cut - but in colour tinted form and with a tartan horse-blanket bias background. Other colours, stylings, sizes and orientations are available on request (eg 3 inch square units on larger sizes of fabric rather than the 2 inch which fits a swatch) and you can even ask for a combination of several designs together.
• plain black and white or greyscale version
• just the tartan
• other mammals

Muybridge didn't try to film any of that sort of two-by-two stuff. That had to wait for a later era - and then for nuclear magnetic resonance imaging!

Oh dear. Oh, dear, dear, dear. Look what that horse is doing.
I can imagine a horse crazy girl loving this as a duvet, or an adolescent boy snickering. But I don't think anyone should make the boy a t-shirt to wear to school out of this.
At least there is only ONE horse in the picture. I would not want to see what those horses were doing if we had two.
But the problem with this one is that Muybridge didn't have colour photography. It would have to be the result of hand colouring of plates or of woodcut prints copied from the originals - both of which did happen back then.
