Sometimes we get called out to Heartland to make a horse look like it has been abused or neglected. In one particular episode, Scott and Ty come across a horse that had been abandoned in an old barn and left for dead. Let me tell you, it’s no easy task turning a fat-bellied, well fed horse into a skinny emaciated one! The ribs had to be painted on, as well as the shadows to create depth in the skin. Sometimes I feel bad making the horses look like this and then I remember – oh yeah, they’re going to be stars!
