If anyone has foxtel and isn't watching this - put it on. Its pretty cool! I'm flicking between it and Big Brother (sad I know!!) but its replayed at 11.30 tonight. Its a show about 3 foals and how they grow up- one is a race horse, one an eventer that becomes a stunt horse and a black colt that escapes its owner and joins a herd in the wild. They are all TB's. When I saw the ads for it I thought it was more of a true life doco but its obviously pretty scripted and fake, yet still good. And the eventing scenes look suspiciously like they were filmed at Wandin Park! Across the road from my place. So if you have foxtel and you're not watching it put it on!

Thanks for the info TG. Hopefully it will be on AUSTAR as well (usually is) and I'm normally awake at that hour so will make a point of watching it. (I take it that it's on Animal Planet?)

Wasn't too bad.. you could tell that the bay horse had been changed through the show.

I enjoyed it and I tend to be very critical on anything horsey :)
