    Default Is there anything Monty Roberts won't claim credit for?

    He couldn't even make it a minute before declairing that the play Warhorse in 2008 was based on te books that 'he' wrote.

    Um Monty

    Wasrhorse premeried in 2007 and was based on not your books but a book called 'Warhorse' that Michael Morpurgo wrote in 1982.

    I only made it theough the first minute of the youtube before my gag reflex got the best of me. If someone with a stronger stomach could get through it perhaps you can post more whoppers that Monty can't help telling.

    I once heard him in person contend that, if Reagan had only sent him, he could have persuaded Saddam Hussein to change his ways and thus averted much tragedy...

    I watched about half the video......I still don't understand where it went....... the Warhorse director asked him to help train horses for the play? But the horse was fake? And there was a real horse there too....but halfway in it hadn't done anything..... Still confused, not willing to waste good brain cells trying to figure him out....
    To be loved by a horse should fill us with awe, for we hath not deserved it.

    And Hussain would have lost a few pounds in the process, running around the round pen for hours...

    :gag:

    I had to stop watching, not just Roberts, but that woman on the stage kept making this breathless laugh/gasp sound that sounded way too intimate to be, um, viewable by the general public.

    But gag in general on that guy...I surprised he hasn't taken credit for the Internet.

    Don't forget that he and ONLY he - in all the history of the world - was the only one to figure out the language of Equus. Well, Monty - what do my pinned ears and wringing tail tell you?

    I made it through the entire cloying video. At least he admits that he had nothing to do with the movie. He also says how unfair it is that horses have to go to war. Ummm.... not for many, many years, now....

    I saw an interview with him years ago where he was training horses for Jesus. If Jesus is God, why can't he train his own horses??? And why would he hire Monty Roberts to train them???
