The national tour of War Horse opened in Minneapolis on June 12 and its star, Joey, is already making friends. At a press event held at the Orpheum Theatre for the show about a boy and his loyal horse in World War I Europe, members of the local media had the chance to get up close and personal with the lead puppet. Joey looked beyond the reporters, however, and became fast friends with Teak and Kristo, members of Minneapolis’ equine patrol unit. Check out this Hot Shot by Karen Nelson of the horses’ play date, and as an added bonus, the Vine video below shows the cuties going nose to nose. War Horse, which plays through June 23.
