A boy and his Horse,with some real problems added
7 March 2006 | by Hollycon1See all my reviews

I am one of the people who enjoy short and sweet, somewhat predictable films. Having said that, I liked this little film. We as a society have become so "sophisticated" that some of us won't allow ourselves some enjoyment from the past. Yea, there are parts in the film that could have been more realistic, but the point of the film was to tell the story of a boy and the horse he loved! Don't judge this film, please, by what others have said. While their feelings are true for them, it's sad that they aren't able to look past the flaws in the movie. Life is flawed, sometimes you get the wrong end of the stick. Get used to it. Sometimes it's nice to have a "Hollywood" ending, and other times it's appropriate to switch it up. This film is from the late 1940's,and it still has a timely message.Enjoy!
