So far the most sensible theory about the horse that I've
read is the note about "death rides a pale horse", so that

when Maddie annouced to the Palmers that she'd be going

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.
