About This Video
Arabian Horse Association past president Cynthia Richardson discusses how the ancient Arabian horse’s conformation is linked to its endurance. She also analyzes desirable conformation traits and gives tips on spotting faults such as sway back and cow-hocked legs.
The respect it accords to young Maki, Soula, and the other African characters in the movie is something I find pleasing. The first giraffe to be transferred to France in 1827 is a true narrative on which the story is based. Although Maki's persona may be a product of artistic imagination, this movie serves as an illustration of the wealth of material and tales that can be drawn from African or African American history. Although there is slavery in this movie, it is not a film about slavery. It's just something to get beyond. This is a tale of love, tenacity, and friendship. You owe it to yourself and your children to watch this movie if you enjoy animation or are a parent of small children who adore cartoons.
