    I liked it in general but I wish not so much of it was in slo-mo.

    So when do they brand the foals?

    Does anyone know if SRS had released any videos in the past few years? I have the two VHS tapes from approximately 20 and 30 years ago, and this presentation was a big letdown when compared to them and the "Symphony In White" program that aired on A&E in the mid-'90s.

    It was OK as a look-at-the-pretty-horses program for the general public, though.

    I watched, and found myself drawn more to the architecture and the scenery; after all, how many scenes of slow motion galloping horses can one watch.

    I enjoyed the scenery and culture and did learn a few things.
    You can watch the full episode here:

    Loved the free running horses in Africa -they were gorgeous!!

    And charisma, looks like they brand the foals at weaning - when they were running out of the stables you could see the shaved square behind their withers.
