Sandy used to be the single Australian warfare Horse to come domestic from international battle I. this can be his poignant and fragmented warfare tale. via Sandy we adventure the lives of 3 males who fought within the war.

Major basic Sir William Throsby Bridges is mortally wounded at Gallipoli, and Sandy is his charger. A veterinary officer is stuck with Sandy in the back of the strains at the Western entrance in a gasoline shell barrage. A ‘permanently not worthy’ soldier turns into a groom and brings Sandy domestic. every one is suffering from their symbiotic courting with the horse.

This exact, poetic piece of theatre captures the brutality of warfare and the heroism of the warriors and horses who served.

Sandy is the pony choked with wattle who drank the waters of the Murray in bucketloads, and who danced with bogong moths.

He is our connection to all these left behind.
