  2. Rafe Judkins on Twitter: I love Bela, and although we're very far away from this, I already want to make sure that we have a consistent horse(s) to track her through the entire run of the show :) September 12, 2018.
  3. Fan asked Rafe Judkins on Twitter, "What character will be hardest to translate to TV?" and Judkins responded: Bela! It's hard to get the same horse to do every scene. So we'll probably be doing some horse make-up on a team of Bela lookalikes. Septemer 12, 2018.
  4. Rafe Judkins on Instagram: "We’ve already had to have two Belas. It turns out a horse for riding on film is not the same as a horse for pulling a cart and SHE MUST DO BOTH". Documented on:
