	So far the most sensible theory about the horse that I've
	read is the note about "death rides a pale horse", so that
	appearance of the horse is death's "calling card".

	Something else that I haven't seen mentioned yet is that
	when Maddie annouced to the Palmers that she'd be going
	back to Missoula, after one of them said something like
	they'd miss her, Maddy promised that she'd "come galloping
	back".  Hmmm...

	A more frivolous theory of mine was that the horse is
	another inhabiting spirit for Leland.  One of his personalities
	seems to be a white-haired hoofer...  [:-) of course of course]

	Monday I asked Scott Frost about the horse; his answer
	was roughly:  "I have no idea where that horse came from.
	Maybe it's another of those inspirations of David's that pop up
	while they're shooting."

	If that's true, and the horse doesn't come back to haunt us,
	it's probably just a harbinger of death.
