The Laughing Horse

Received from Uli (Germany)

Sorry for the blurry picture. The postcard show the evolution of VQR since 1921 till nowadays (I would like to have the old ones!). Did you realise a sligh difference in the last box?

This is what the sender wrote on the back of the postcard. It makes me think...
Foods advertised as containing beef were found to contain undeclared horse meat, as much as 100% of the meat content in some cases, and other undeclared meats, such as pork. The issue came to light on 15 January 2013, when it was reported that horse DNA had been discovered in frozen beefburgers sold in several European supermarkets. Maybe in this year too, some dairies adulterated the cow's milk with mare's milk. Who knows...


  1. There was such a fuss about this horse meat issue in the UK where horses are definbitely for riding not eating! So this VQR postcard one was brilliant.

    1. This postcard is absolutely wonderful!
