I am struck by the posture of the man and its relationship to the horse that is both goofy and (thanks to the title) symbolic.

It reminds me of this statue at Carnegie Mellon University:

And many images of men with ploughs

But here it is the man pulling the beast.  And the beast is not doing any work besides being symbolic and entertaining.   The man is doing all the work.   He is energetic and determined, but the emptiness of the frame speaks volumes.
