that's really cool. At times the puppeteer that was controlling the head really looked like he was being pushed around by the "horse". He really practiced that. I kept waiting for the owner to mount up =)

It was a "broadway" show in London first. IT will be made into a movie, coming out in a few months, I think. Or sooner, not sure.

I would love to see the theatre version or the movie for that matter. I can imagine the hours they spent getting all the details down. Amazing!!!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

The book was really great (and too short to be honest). I think when I saw the trailer, the movie will be out in December and I'm pretty sure Spielberg directed it. I cannot wait!

But that was very very cool to see. Thanks for posting. :)

Too cool. Thanks for posting! I can't wait to see the movie, even though they used real horses instead of those awesome puppets. So much work and practice must have gone into those! Simply brilliant!

I only wish they'd had the eyes be moveable and the eyes open and close. That tells a lot about feeling, though horses done' seem to blink as much as many animals do.
