    That is stunning. I'd love to be able to see it. It took me a minute or two to see that it wasn't a real horse with an overlay of metal.

    Thank you so much for posting this.

    Steven Spielberg just bought the movie rights to it. It will be interesting to see what he does with it.

    It may be a great show, but I don't think I want to see it. I have a feeling the horses in the story probably do not fare well in the war.

    I saw it when it was still playing at the National last year -just and amazing, heart wrenching production about WWI, and the people on BOTH sides. So very worth seeing!!

    Really, you SHOULD see it if you get a chance. Yes, parts of it ARE very sad, but it's so... beautifully done. You forget that these horses are really PUPPETS, and the operators just vanish into the background while in plain sight!

    I really believe that all great art has an element in it that breaks your heart.I would love to see this play.I know I would be in pieces as I can't watch the video clip without weeping.

    If the horse is lame there are plenty of spare parts (legs) in the prop room . . . I love this, if only it were true in the real horse world.

    Amazing, and yet also seriously creepy. At first I thought they were horses covered in the wire...until I saw the movement of the back legs.

    Very neat - wonderful art - and yet...*shiver*
