  • Trivia

    • The heartwarming scene with the newborn filly marks a unique new experience for Laura, as well as actress Melissa Gilbert. In interviews, Gilbert has said that they put her in this scene purely on a whim, and the expression of wonderment on Laura's face is the genuine feeling that Gilbert had as she saw a newborn horse for the very first time (just like her character was). For that matter, Gilbert has said that many of the first-time experiences that the Laura character had on-screen were first times for Gilbert, as well.
