When you ride a horse, you develop a bond that's unlike any other. Horses are too tall for my liking, so it's other people who have told me this, but I believe them! Many actors have said this as well, and actors are the kind of people who often make enough money to buy stuff from the sets of their own movies -- like, for example, the horse they rode on.
Liam Neeson made headlines this week by claiming that the horse he worked with on the Coen brothers' new Western, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, recognized him from a project they'd both worked on years before.
"You won’t believe it. I’m saying this horse knew me," Neeson told Page Six. "He actually remembered me from another Western we made a while back. I love animals. When we worked together before I took special care of him. I fed him treats. Gave him apples…. He whinnied when he saw me. And pawed the ground."
