Bang! You’re Dead! – Movie Stunt Horse

If you can’t see the embedded video of Dusty the movie horse playing dead, click here.

No, this handsome buckskin who answers to “Dusty” isn’t in “War Horse.” Be sure to read the YouTube comments in the above link, though. He likes vanilla wafers.

Anyway, Dusty sure is good at playing dead.  Just like those fine equine actors who “decorate” the battlefields in “War Horse.”

    Awww. It would be fun to follow the trainers around while they work with the horses. I took lots of riding lessons and wish I had taken many more lessons about training horses. Aren’t horses just amazing!

      They are. Horses are what people would call “street smart.” Also, according to Lovgren, the American “Horse Master” who worked on “War Horse” (Finder’s owner/trainer), the skills — the ability to train equine actors — are dying out. Thanks for saying “hi,” Susie.

    Dusty has very good taste–I am a vanilla wafer fan, too!

    Just stopped by to wish a happy new year 2012 to The Horsey Set! I hope it’s a great one for this blog!
