Coxcomb The Horse

Coxcomb, photographed by Roger Fenton in 1855

During the Crimean War, Coxcomb was the winner of the Crimean races. The horse was the property of Captain Barnard, Grenadier Guards. In the picture Captain Morgan, Rifle Corps, aide-de-camp to General Bernard, is sitting on the horse.
