The story of our lifetime. Some people may call this a standard Hallmark movie, unfortunately they are wrong. When talking to the critics, some believed the horse was the best "actor" in this movie. But the father of the disgruntled troubled girl and her possible "lover" James, absolutely steal the show. The raw emotion and dedication of their craft bring a whole new meaning to the phrase, method acting. The young man was somehow able to bring his IQ down to 27 in a way that has not been seen in cinema since Tom Hanks played Forrest Gump in the movie, "Forrest Gump." And the father brought a passion that critics have not seen since Napoleon Dynamite brought in the early 2000s. If you find yourself bored with this movie, stop, and take an introspective look into how you would react if you were stuck on a horse farm with a tired, nap ridden grandmother, and a "special" friend who has no room for original thought. Let the Christmas spirit run through you as a family with 2 parents in the real estate market in a big city in 2016 aren't able to loan you even a portion on $3,500 for the debt to keep their home. But luckily show ponies are a treasure trove! See this movie, please!!
