Was the shot horse a real horse in The Revenant?
In the beginning scenes, when the men are running heading for the boat, a quick clip shows a barely clothed man come out of a tent or some type of structure. He aims a gun and SHOOTS a horse. He turns and wobbles back into the covering.
It didn't make sense and the horse more than I can stress was a real living horse. My question is just that. WAS THAT A REAL HORSE?
AND it puzzles me why nobody cares or asks about this horse. Everyone asks about the bear, and, that's obvious. Everyone has something to say about the fish and of course the scene regarding the horse going over the cliff with DiCaprio, but, no one mentions this horse for that matter no one mentions the moose that they shot at the very beginning of the film. THE HORSE. Was the horse real?
