maybe you would have write : "la boucherie chevaline"?
because in french we say that.
we say "la viande de cheval" ou "la boucherie chevaline"

nice drawing!

Thank you all for your comments.
Pascal, actually the guy had little coloured flags hanging in his shop with the text "la viande chevaline" on it. I didn't draw those, because the flags would have spoiled the drawing. But I appreciate the correction, that's the way to learn.
