    She is a great actor. Such a shame that I am going to have to hate her so much.

    Hang on, are you saying they've cast a horse for Bela and given her an announcement like the human actors?

    I mean, I agree, and it's definitely not a shaggy brown mare ... but I am a stickler for things like this and I'm sure I'll have to just get over it.

    He looks pretty small to me, for a normal horse. any smaller and we'd have to look at a legit pony. There are easily horses out there that will dwarf him.

    Yes, he looks pretty damn small to me, he might even be a pony. Basically if a horse is less than 5' tall at the top of it's shoulders/base of it's neck, it is a pony.

    Yeah he's not very big. I'd like to see more of him actually. He's pretty.

    I hope they do well with the horses, I haaaate when I can't concentrate on something because I'm too busy being annoyed with the horse scenes. When the actors look like they're about to fall off or they are OBVIOUSLY holding back during what's supposed to be a chase.

    I hated Hidalgo. :grumble

    Epiphany about Min and Elayne:

    They are essentially walk on parts in EOTW that the casting department may be waiting on casting until they are major players (we don't really meet Elayne until Egwene gets to the Tower). Yes, they get introduced in EOTW but they don't become major characters until much later in the series.
