Camera Cars

Firstly, there's an easy and fabulous contest going on at She Moved to Texas so check it out to enter to win some ShowSheen!


Fairly soon after I adopted Hemie, I was invited to join a Facebook group started by a friend-of-a-friend who also adopted a horse from the HBO TV series Luck. I joined it and for the first few months it was mostly just gals like myself sharing pictures and stories about retraining their Luck horses for new careers.

But then I noticed some exciting activity going on - people from the TV show's production crew were now a part of the group and offering some insight on some of our equine stars!  Allow me to share:


Squeeee!! So cool!! No wonder he handles things so well.

Here's a photo of another Luck horse, Monty, with the camera car.


I admit that I haven't actually watched any of the show, but I think I should especially to see if I can pick out my horse in the last two episodes.

Cute aside: right after we got Hemie, my husband went on youtube and found a racing clip from Luck. "There's Bohemian!" he said, pointing to the token bay in the racing scene (they've got a black, a chestnut, a grey, a liver...). They have leg wraps and eye blinkers on, not to mention some of them are painted to match other horses. I had no idea if that horse was Hemie or not. I tried to explain this to Rick but...well, you know how horse husbands are.

  1. Cool! It's such an interesting back-story for a horse to have. You should get Bohemian to write his autobiography like Black Beauty did....
    "I grew up on a little farm.... became a race horse.... next I was an actor.... then I was chosen to be a sportshorse with a nice girl...."

    1. Yeah seriously! But do I watch the whole beginning of the season first so that I know what's going on in the last 2...?

  6. That guy on the front of the car is insane! I never watched Luck, but might have to see if I can find it. Wonder if it is on Netflix.
