    Default LOTR-lovers!

    Aiya!
    Will you do something special with your hair when you are going to watch "The Hobbit- an unexpected journey"?
    I need some inspiration for my almost BSL hair, and which place am I going to get it if not here?

    you know I've been so concerned with how to decorate my 3d glasses that I'd completely forgotten about my hair... I might just have to start practicing Elven hair again! Well actually I do have to start practicing Elven hair, especially since I'm planning to go see the final film in costume. I'm waiting for the 3rd film just in case Tauriel has a really cool outfit, otherwise I shall be Arwen

    I'm very concerned about the animal abuse/neglect that went on during filming. I was so excited for the movie, and now will never see it. Don't want to give them my money, so sad
    What you find irresistable is what you choose not to resist.

    The posted an official response to that on the official facebook page today. The allegations were actually made by 2 animal handlers who were fired a year ago because THEY weren't treating animals properly. And given how much care they showed native plants and all animals during the filming of LOTR I highly doubt that this really happened. Indeed the following messages of support were actually issued in response to this:

    FROM: DR JULIA BRYCE BVSc
    “From December 2010 till July 2012, this practice was the primary Veterinary care giver for the horses and livestock in the care of “Three Foot Seven”.

    During this period we were consulted promptly in cases of injury and illness. We were also consulted routinely about ongoing veterinary care and preventative medicine.

    If referral was required to a specialist clinic or Massey Equine Clinic, this occurred promptly. As occurs in normal practice there are incidences and injury which may result in an unfavourable outcome and others that recover completely; like the young goat who fractured a front leg but recovered completely after 6 weeks in a cast and hospital rest, or the rooster who spent two weeks at our clinic with a foot infection.

    These and other animals in the care of Three Foot Seven Limited received the best available treatment to ensure their recovery, their welfare and return to good health was paramount to those in charge. At no time were we concerned about the welfare and on-going treatment of animals under our care.”


    FROM: JOY GRAY - FARMER
    “I was appalled to hear of the wild claims being made in the media by PETA. I and my family own the farm which the Hobbits used to train their animals. Myself, my manager, my children and grand-children saw nothing to make us uncomfortable or give us cause for concern. We all had totally free access to all activities at all times. In fact, the animals were wonderfully looked after, being well-fed, well-housed, and well-treated. As both farmers and dedicated horse people ourselves we would have stood for nothing less. I myself ride horses, all my children rode competitively and now my grandchildren ride.

    I was involved in Pony Club for many years and was District Commissioner for the Wellington Pony Club. My manager was totally aware of all that was happening with the Hobbits and he is outraged at these false claims.

    The sixty horses, the cattle, oxen, sheep, goats, dogs, pigs, hens etc. were given professional and humane treatment.”


    FROM: JED BROPHY - ACTOR (NORI)
    “As an actor and animal trainer who has worked on large scale productions here in New Zealand, in particular The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and more recently, The Hobbit, I am flabbergasted to read this morning of the accusations levelled at the production by PETA. With a production as large as The Hobbit, filmed over such an extensive period the care of the animals used in filming was exceptional. The entire time we were on set, and when we were training with the animal wranglers employed to look after and train the animals for filming, I observed no mistreatment - in fact the opposite is true.

    The animals were treated with the utmost care and responsibility. The farm in which they were housed had excellent facilities for the care and maintenance of the animals’ health. So much so that I moved my own horse on site so I could ride him for training exercises. At all times on set we had experienced Wranglers and Animal health Authorities on hand and Vets to monitor the welfare of the Animals working for the film. It has been my experience working for this film company that they take every conceivable precaution and employ the very best practitioners in every department and that includes the animal department.

    I feel that there is a certain amount of personal vindictiveness levelled at the production from individuals with their own agenda. As is often the case in these situations, organisations will leap at the chance to gain publicity for their cause without seeking the truth. Being an experienced horseman and having worked as a wrangler and rider in the past, I would not have allowed myself to be a part of any production that knowingly employed unsafe practice in the workplace in this way. I can say with absolute certainty the production went out of their way to treat animals with the upmost respect and care.”


    And given that PETA are the ones jumping up and down about this it's probably not true, PETA just want to cause trouble. Probably in an effort to get themselves some free publicity

    I do hope the allegations are not true. I've really been looking forward to the movie but had planned on not going after the allegations were made.

    It's reasuring that you guys seem do know what they have been saying isn't true about animals being treated badly... I dearly hope it is not!

    Well I have been thinking of going as a hobbit, I don't have the long slender frame of my ideal elven woman... so hairy feet it is.
    How I shall manage that I don't know, any ideas?

    So headhairwise I was thinking of doing pincurls:


    And try make a hairdo/outfit to make me look like one of those cute hobbitgirls/women at Bilbo's birthdayparty.

    Oh hmm. This is the first I've heard about the animal dealio.. I'm not that tuned in to the media though. I do know that PETA just loves attention, and I seriously doubt the LOTR production would do anything to harm anything. They've always been very caring and respectful.

    I'm definitely going to see the movie!

    I will be wearing my hair down with braid waves and a fishtail braid behind each ear and my circlet .

    Must practice fishtail..
