How can I ever forget this movie.
19 April 2004 | by RvanderstruikSee all my reviews

Follyfoot was a very succesfull movie for children and adults who like horses a lot. In 1971 I was a child but until now I never forgot about it. If there would be someone who has this serie on tape it would please a lot of people to let me know. I know that in Germany for example is a website for follyfoot fans. Hopefully I hear something of someone who liked the serie as well as I did. Also I do not know who are paul and Steve? I saw the sirie twice, ones in English and ones in German. I always thought that in English it was Steve and in German it was Paul but that it was one and the same boy. If I see the pictures at the internet I cannot see two boys, so which one is paul?
