That was me in school but she had a cooler name. And I was working from age 8. The dairy farm had no horses just cows and nasty chickens...oh, and no electricity or water, so had to use an outhouse.
So, grew to love the city but never gave up my fascination with some day owning horse. Never happened, but it never bittered me on horses.
Pintos are my favorite and I had to watch this film on Prime. I thought it was so great. I needed relaxing due to power outage earlier, and knew this would be the one. It was.
I'm jealous of Moondance for having a better name and a chance to work with horses.
Don Johnson (a long time fav since A Boy and His Dog) played a saddened horse trainer. He was not grouchy in the usual sense as he was smiling within 5 minutes.
I run into people all the time who won't adopt a rescue. This woman who thinks thoroughbreds are the ONLY horses, reminds me of them, esp during Adopt a Cat month.
This is a great family movie for popcorn and a cozy spot on the couch. Mean girls, their boyfriends, loss of father and how an animal can give you faith in yourself.
Minus one star: Lori used to be one of my favorite actresses and she blew it. If she had downplayed it and kept her face out of the press so much, it would have helped. I loved her mystery series on Hallmark but they dumped her. And that is what I see in my mind when she is onscreen. So very sad...
