The Shetland pony Tucker (Dustin Hoffman) had to be painted brown during filming because his real coat turned grey. Everyone was so surprised, but the animal trainers did a little touch-up with brown dye. See more »

I thought this was a very funny movie. I laughed a lot and don't think that the jokes were too much (maybe the pecker joke). Someone said that the first 20 minutes were slow but OK to get used to the animation, but I think the animation was done really well and the race with the mailman is in there as well. The mailman was very cool ! (my father is a mailman, but this one is a lot more fun and hotter). I would have liked to see more with him. Hopefully he will be in more films.
The relationship between the father and the daughter could have been a little better, but the father and the zebra are nice together (with the training).
The story is a lot of fun for kids and families. My 5 year old loved it !! The horses are really beautiful. and so is the zebra (especially as a baby) I have never been to Kentucky, but I did not know it was not made in America, it looked beautiful.
All around I think you will like this movie !
