Believe it or not, I saw this movie when it first came out and still remember it. .
9 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was a little girl my parents finally got a color television. I know that sounds strange now, but back in the 60's a color TV was really something. The entire neighborhood wanted to come to your house just to stare at...it, even if it wasn't on LOL. Well, we had the first one on our street and our folks only allowed us to stay up until 9:00 on Sunday night to watch the end of Walt Disney, because we had school the next day. Back then we did what our folks said because there was always the threat of a paddling and when your Dad is 6'4" and an Airborne Paratrooper that kinda carried a "special" meaning. Anyway, one night this movie came on, "The Tattooed Police Horse", we had never seen anything like it, this animal overcame so many hardships, so many scary things, things that even then were as scary s stuff we faced on the playground. He became strong inside and faced all that anyway and became something really special. It was so cool! Being a girl who was already horse crazy it was better than cool it was fantastic!. Well I grew up to be just like my Dad,(no not a paratrooper) a soldier and a Military Police officer and when I got injured on duty I retired and rescued 6 horses,to include 1 retired Police Horse. This was all because of a my Dad and great movie I saw when I was a kid, "The Tattooed Police Horse."
