Big Horse

Two draft horses, Spike and Smitty, tell their own story about life on the farm and in the trenches.

They gallop and snort, pull heavy artillery in war and hay wagons in peace. Hundreds of years ago, their ancestors carried knights into battle, worked in the mines, hauled freight and fought fires. They all have names, these unsung four legged heroes. And personalities. They speak for themselves in this film. They helped carry this nation into greatness. Enjoy the ride!
