The 7th sign in the cycle is the Horse, it's also the 6th sheet that was issued in Canada.
And I have to admit, it's a small piece of art.
The sheet itself is oxtagonal, withe a 'normal' stamp in the middle. Well, what is normal?
The horse is printed in red metallic ink. Similar to previous sheets in this series, the horse is embossed, but also the border frame around the stamp.

Looking at the sheet, it's like we're in a house, looking through the window, where a horse is playing outside in the garden. The embossed frame gives the impression of a window, and the flowers are printed behind that windom.
The horse seems to be beween the flowers and the window.

In the border of the sheet, we see all 12 animals of the zodiac circle, the horse is printed in gold.
