    Default Does anybody know who the pony is that plays Merrylegs in the 1994 Black Beauty Movie

    I know, I'm terribly behind the times, but I just watched the movie and LOVED the cute grey pony! Google isn't helping me much and the credits only listed Black Beauty (Docs Keepin Time - now deceased). I'm curious if anybody in COTH land knows who played Merrylegs was in the movie... looked to be Welsh or at least a Welsh cross.

    Merrylegs, the dapple gray pony who befriends Black Beauty at the first stable, was played by a Shetland-Welsh pony cross that Ms. Thompson took home after the shooting, to join her other three horses.

    My daughter is obsessed with that movie. I like it too. Merrylegs and Ginger are favorites here too!
