'The Lone Ranger' and the Trouble With White Horses

There are a lot of bad things to be said about The Lone Ranger, so not much has been said about the good. One of the good things: the horses who play Silver are tasked with matching Depp, mug for mug, and they pull it off with aplomb. Not an easy feat.

I grew up when The Lone Ranger rode into our living rooms each day, for 30 minutes. I expect many good things from this movie, not the least of which is larger doses of humor dispensed by Johnny Depp. It is interesting that they had to have so many pure white horses. I'm just glad they no longer abuse animals when making movies.

They have always had more than one white horse. My father sold the second Silver to the studios when I was a child. You could tell the difference if you paid attention more so if you knew a bit about horses. I'm happy horses are treated better now. I will be seeing the movie in part for nostalgia and in part to see Depp's spin on Tonto
