Cavalia and the best quote of the day

Cavalia: A Magical Encounter between Horse and Men  is a trick pony show of the Uber cool type. It has dancing horses of exquisite beauty and frothy young maidens dancing atop them in a blue lit big tent just outside San Fransicso. Thousands are flocking to the show- it is unreal.
They have been here twice before. I worked for them for a short while the first year- but that is another story ( Their horses all speak FRENCH!) Even working there I didn't get a chance to see the show, only exercise,  clean, feed and rub Le Petite belles and Un Grande Belle.

So in todays San Francisco Chronicle they interviewd five different people about the show, and what did they think of the horses, and what was their favorite memory of a horse or horsback riding.
  Strangley enough no one said 'being run away with'~ but I digress as usual.
The last question was~ What is your favorite horse in film?

Quoted by a middle aged man, (publisher) from Oakland who shall remain nameless.

" I loved The Black Stallion because of the pure beauty of that horse. She was beautiful."

Lol! I loved Cavalia. I saw it here in Phx a few yrs back. If I didn't have a child, you can bet your life I would have gotten a job on that show. I'd do just about anything to get in with those people. Amazing, amazing show.

Cavalia was here in Colorado for a month, but I didn't get a chance to see it. I will for sure next time, I'm dying to see it.

Snort, sputter, dab, dab. That was me blowing coffee out my nose. That comment about the stallion, "She was beautiful", the world if full of idjets. Almost as good as the time we filmed "Nash Bridges" and Drew (a gelding) played the part of a broodmare.
