Finally! Paddy & Red's Acting Debut

Remember waaaay back before Christmas when Red and Paddy were part of a video shoot for a Goodwill commercial? Well, the commercial is FINALLY out!

Here's the short version. Paddy gets to play the King's horse, and hubby is the guy in armor holding Paddy.



Here's the long version. Those are Red's ears at the beginning - he's playing stunt double to the chestnut that the little boy was riding, because the other horse wasn't interested in having a steadycam strapped to his back. You mostly get to see my hair.


Paddy's contemplating moving to Hollywood now to pursue an acting career. I think he wants to be paid in peppermints.

  1. Peppermints are the best way to be paid. Nice hair, BTW.

    1. He wants glasses and a fedora so he can go incognito.

  3. Awesome! Love his expression when the horse walks up to him.
    Now Paddy is going to be demanding things like walks on red carpets and hand fed hay, haha!

    1. The first take we did of the walk-up scene, Paddy whinnied to the other horses. It was super cute, but of course they cut all the sound from the vid.

      Paddy likes the hand-fed hay idea, btw. :)

  11. Awesome!!!! Paddy does such a good job looking adorable and I even liked the commercial. If he starts twit wars with William Shatner, then he's truly arrived!
