Comments & Info From:
Jerry Brown, belonged
to Hudkin Bros. Movie Stable, but was so popular he was used by most of
the stables. Jerry
was a non-descript bay (good thing for the roles he played because the
movie goer never consciously identified him from one movie or scene to
the next. He could fall several times in one movie alone and not be recognized
as the same horse) who was fearless when he worked. Of course, the ground
was always primed and soft. Fall horses were always treated gingerly, so
they would not injure themselves, for two reasons: One, their work was
valuable and an injury meant they couldn't work. Two, if they became afraid
to fall, their career was over.
