Overview

The made-for-cable The Colt takes place in Virginia in the fourth year of the Civil War. The mare owned by young Jim Rabb (Ryan Merriman) of the First Michigan Cavalry gives birth to a colt, which battle-weary Sgt. Longacre (Steve Bacic) orders Jim to shoot so as not to slow down the other soldiers in the unit. Jim refuses to do so, risking severe disciplinary action. As it turns out, the Confederates strike before Longacre does, stealing both colt and mare. Again defying orders, Jim heads out alone to rescue his beloved horses, saving the life of a dying Rebel prisoner along the way. Ultimately, the colt proves to be an inspiration to Jim's comrades in arms, and is duly immortalized by another member of the First Michigan, army artist Covington (Darcy Belsher). An uplifting tale of unassailable innocence in the midst of America's bloodiest war, The Colt made its Hallmark channel debut on July 9, 2005.

The colt is one of those average horse TV movies. The acting is okay but the horses really steal the show. The baby is cute. But back to the film. The script is just fair and the soundtrack is boring. Is there emotion? Yes. Is there any suspense? Not really. It's definatly not oscar or Golden globe worthy. Its not even emmy award worth. But horse lovers will definately like this drama. And yes the end is sad. The colt is one of those average horse TV movies. The acting is okay but the horses really steal the show. The baby is cute.
