pony petters Can't Post

 
since i'm fond of horses and kind to animals in real life, i notice (and like) when individuals, either acting as their characters or their real-life selves, are nice to horses and ponies in the films. giving them gentle pats and so on.

i noticed quite a few individuals in auj patting their equine companions. not sure whether they were doing this because they were just being themselves or whether they thought their characters would do this, but i like seeing it.

gandalf pets shadowfax, and the horse on whom he rode to isengard. i think i also recall him petting his horse in auj.

bilbo / freeman of course pets myrtle. i believe i saw both dori and fili pet their ponies. i'll have to watch again, keeping the pony petters in mind, and keep a tally.

has anyone else noticed this?

cheers --

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo
