I've noticed a couple other things in this card while working with it.

The horse's blanket also contains an image of Osiris as the Lord of the Underworld, suggesting the cycle of life and death.

The horse wears a feathered headdress. Feathers are associated with the sky and the sun. They are also used as indicators of social status and can represent sovereignty and truth. "That was a feather in his cap" means that was quite an accomplishment and "in fine feather" means in great appearance or in one's best condition.

The King's horse is not a race horse or a war horse. It's more of a show horse, a symbol of the king's success and wealth (both of which are apparently related to the production and harvesting of wheat).
