wood carving of a horse head from India

My friend just bought a wood carving of a horse head (Pictures: 1
). It's supposedly from India and about 200-300 years old. Furthermore, the seller told us people used to hang them in pairs on the sides of their door as a status symbol (hence the wrought iron nail through the chest).

We can't seem to find any information about it though. Has anyone of you ever seen something like this? And if so, can you tell us what it is?
Any information would be appreciated.
