Friday Foxer #157

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers.

To fully defox this jigsaw foxer you’ll need to identify 30 ‘Paintings Wot Include Horses’.
