There’s a special emotional bond between people and animals. Think about that dog or cat you love(d) – they are always there for you. It’s really no different with horses. But, unlike dogs and cats, horses often move on to other homes due to costs or life circumstances, meaning that the kids who grow up with them often have to say goodbye at some point.  

In this short film titled April & Dixie--created by The Martin Agency for client Purina Mills--the bond between a girl and her horse is captured, with a reminder that an equine friend from one’s past may still be out there.

This short launches Purina’s FindYourOldFriend.com, a site which offers a potential way to reconnect. Through Purina’s social channels and hundreds of regional Facebook ads, horses and their previous owners could be brought back together to tell true stories of their reunions.

Terry Rayment of production company Eskimo directed April & Dixie, which was complemented by the song "Rest Get Here" sung by Sharon Irving, with sound design from Bob Arno of Rainmaker.
