"Apostle," the trick horse owned and trained by David Davis and which played the role of Caleb in the film, is a Black Overo trained to lie on his side on command - something very few horses will do. During filming, Apostle would lie on his side for about 7 minutes at a time before getting up. Among his many other tricks, Apostle is also trained to limp on command, favoring his right front leg as though it's injured. The film's director had scripted and storyboarded a scene showing Caleb limping to the barn following the accident, but because of running behind schedule during production with a skeleton crew, was unable to get that shot.
