The horse that never gives up.
28 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A clumsy horse with dreams of glory on the track sees Porky Pig as his ticket and is determined to win him over. Like Wile E. Coyote in the later Chuck Jones Roadrunner cartoons, the horse seems to have a high threshold of pain, plus there is little dialog. Lots of horse and horse race gags--and horse racing was quite popular then. It's a mystery as to how or why the horse tumbles out of a barn clad in a floppy hat, a union suit that he must have donned through the trap door, and astride a rocking chair. Inspired by a scene from another movie or something the writer saw on a visit to the countryside perhaps. "The Old Grey Mare" plays in tune with the creaking chair and throughout the short. No Technicolor treatment for this one but we can learn something from the horse who is the real star here: Don't stop striving for excellence. A similar horse turns up in "The Draft Horse" just a few years later, and Chuck made more and better cartoons.
