    Default Joey/Sultan "War Horse" Meets Paparazzi at the Theater

    He gets the red carpet treatment and is greeted by royalty! Sultan is the horse used in the barbed wire segment of the movie.

    According to the movie's head trainer, his own horse Finder was the one in the barbed wire. The info for that video says Sultan was used for galloping through the trenches.

    Each horse of the 10 or so used to play Joey had their own specialty.

    Default war horse

    I found a link (and I'll try to find it again and post it here) with a story about building the barb wire horse--------the entire thing was animation. It was on a link about "no animals were harmed"-----again, I'll try to find it and post it here. It was hooked to the animal protection folks that were on the setwas
