A stable scene, presumably depicting the patron's favourite hunter and dog, in a large stable block; the only clue to the patron being the 'R.H' on the horse's blanket. Signed Claude Ferneley, Melton Mowbray, and dated 1870. Oil on canvas, within a gilt gesso frame of the period.

The son of John E. Ferneley, brother of John Junior and Sarah, Claude Fernenley was born at Melton Mowbray and lived there all his life. He was named after his godfather, Charles Lorraine Smith, the famous squire of Enderby and patron of sporting artists. Claude was a talented artist (and accomplished musician), working in both oils and watercolours. He sometimes helped his father by painting in backgrounds, a practise that was always recorded in the accounts and charged at a reduced rate.
