Have just watched art critic, Waldemar Januszczak's, film on the artist Peter Paul Rubens.

He says Rubens had a daily routine - He watched his weight, ate only a light lunch and after work each day in late afternoon would go for a ride. The horses in his painting were his own horses.
Quite satisfying to see that a sketch of three horses which came up for sale a few years ago was bought by the Queen.
But for anyone with time on their hands during lockdown, I would love to hear some comments on Ruben's horses - conformation, tack or anything else.
