“We’re going to be famous,” Jay said as he tucked oats into a canvas bag. “There’ll be books written about us. Maybe even a movie.”
I learned that movies were a new thing, described as “moving pictures,” that people watched in darkened rooms in big buildings. George talked a lot about one of them called “The Great Train Robbery.” He wanted our movie to be like that.
Their enthusiasm was contagious and all the horses, especially me, were eager to get started. Perhaps George was going to help me fulfill my dream to do something great and become famous after all.
