p.s. Lest you worry about animal hatred, "Presently Euros dashes onto the set. He has news. "The horse has arrived!" he announces. "YAY" cheers Billie. "Ooh, I can hear it," grins David. When the beautiful white horse appears, he gets lots of attention. "Hello, lovely," says Billie. "Hello, mate," says Noel, "Nice hooves." "Can I get a picture with the horse?" interrupts Billie."
