I'm a big fan of Currier & Ives. So what I did here is I took a photo of a drawing in a book and then played with it in a ps. This drawing was called "Imported Messenger" copyright 1880 by C&I. It was signed by J.Cameron. Messenger was one of the great sires in early American Thoroughbreds, he was born in England.

Kirsi, for a second I thought you may have achieved this in ps from a photo of a horse. But it is a very striking image #2351087
