Still my favorite story from the Lord of the Rings set: Viggo Mortensen bonded so much with the horse he rode in the movies that after filming was over he bought it from its owner. If that doesn’t warm your heart I don’t know what could.
Don’t forget that he also bought Arwen’s horse for her stunt rider when she couldn’t afford it.
#Also don’t forget that for the Rohirrim they put a call out for locals #”Bring a horse show us you can ride it and get a part in the battle scenes” #And one women went out roped a wild horse and rode for a few days to set #And got to be a rider of rohan
Also sort of relevant- Viggo also bought the horse that costarred with him in the movie Hidalgo and subsequently took the horse (tj) with him to the red carpet premier.
Also most of the Riders of Rohan are actually women because when they put out that call mostly women showed up with their horses and the costume team just stuck beards on them.
If this isn’t the best post I don’t know what is.
I’ve never watched the movie and now I have to just for all of this. I love that he bought both the horses he worked with. I wonder if they get turned out together? I feel like that’s an adorable little horsey family.

A little late but I did the pokemon fusion thing! Bone Puppies!
Kaz Shiomi & Kiko+’s “Ashiato Animal Footprint Sandals”
aka how to confuse forensics after you’ve committed a murder
there are two kinds of people in this world
i am just gonna wear these and go shit on someone’s yard
I need these
if i was harry, i would have stuck a letter down the front of my pants and ran out on the front lawn bc
- the dursleys aren’t gonna chase me and cause a scene, it’d upset their pristine reputation
- if they DID chase me out, they’d have to put their hand down my pants to get to the letter and i’d just start screaming STRANGER DANGER STRANGER DANGER and fuck up their repuation for real
you would kill voldemort in first year at that rate
