Claire the mare is sold to Hobbit movie makers
Claire, a 16-hand part Clydesdale grey mare, was purchased from Whakatane equestrian enthusiast Rachel Learmond by the movie’s head animal wrangler Steve Old last week.
When he first phoned having seen Claire for sale on the TradeMe website, Miss Learmond thought it was a scam or a joke. “They rang up and it was like ‘yeah right’. Now I just think it’s really funny.”Posted in Casting Rumors, Hobbit Cast News, Hobbit Movie, The Hobbit on April 10, 2011 by newsfrombree Source: Whakatane Beacon Claire the mare is sold to Hobbit movie makers | Discuss
