Giveaway: War Horse at Walton Arts Center!


We can’t wait to see this show, a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. It looks so good!

If you’re chomping at the bit to see it, too, we’re giving away TWO tickets to see the show on May 22. Giddy-up!

ABOUT WAR HORSE: England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride. Winner! Five 2011 Tony® Awards.

  1. My most loyal friends are my 2 best friends that I have known since the seventh grade. We’ve never backstabbed, fought, or stole any boyfriends. We are truly best friends and love each other like sisters. We are always there to help each other through anything. I don’t know where I’d be without their love and support.
    I have shared your post on Facebook and Twitter. 🙂

  2. My best friend was without a doubt my mother Evelyn Calhoon Rogers. She is no longer her on earth but resides in Heaven. I spent 57 years enjoying her guidance, care and companionship. My brother was 14 years older than me and was married when I was three so I was raised as an only child. My mother could not have afforded or wanted a babysitter so we were together almost all of the time. When I became I teenager I began to have other “Best Friends” who would come and go in and out of my life, but the one constant friend was my Mother. I miss her very much but I have her with me everyday when I recall something she said, did or taught me. I never heard her say an unkind word about anyone, although she did sometimes quote the truth about mistakes they had made. Everyone she knew loved and treasured her friendship. She had learned how to be a faithful friend, and a loving parent from my grandparents and she never disappointed them. I have two daughters and I have raised them using my mother’s blueprint. They are kind, responsible adults today and they were loved and treasured by my mother and she by them. I am blessed.

  3. My best friend would be my husband. Who else can love me through the ups and downs like him? And he tolerates my bad mood when I’m hungry….. Love him.

  4. Would love to win! My most loyal friend is my best friend since 2nd grade (20 some odd years). No matter how far apart we live or how long we go without talking, we can always pick up where we left off. She’s shared all my most important moments and I know will be in my life when I’m old and gray.

  5. My best friend would have to be my husband, Michael. I know it sounds so Cliché, but he has always been there for me since we dated and I couldn’t image my life without him. I know I can tell him anything in the world and he would never judge me. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him. I love this giveaway and if I do win, then I will want to share this with him. Thanks again for such an amazing Mom Prom!

  6. My most loyal friend would have to be Brenda Richardson. We met in the 8th grade at our church in Ft. Smith. We became instant friends, attended the U of A together in under grad and then both attend grad school–me law school, Brenda the MBA program. We spent countless hours studying until the wee hours of the morning, until we were giddy from being so tired. She now lives in TX and even though we seldom see each other, we text and talk on the phone. And each time we talk, we pick up where we left off–it’s as if we have never been apart. She is there when I need someone to pray with or share a giggle with. Such a dear soul!

  7. My best friend Lori. We met in college and have been friends for the last 17 years. 6 kids and several moves later, we are still best friends!

  8. I have had the same 4 best friends since the 6th grade… almost 15 years! We are now spread over 3 states but still keep in touch on a weekly basis. We Make an effort every Christmas to still together at someone’s home. We are there for each other at every opportunity through happy times and sad. These are friendships that have truly withstood the test of time.

  9. My very best friend is my husband. 31+ years of marriage, three kids, lots of love and laughter later, he is the best!

  10. No question, it’s my best friend since the 11th grade, Kelly. We have seen each other through so much and I look forward to many years of continued friendship w/her. Not sure what I would’ve done w/out her and know I don’t want to think of the day we won’t have each other to lean on.

  11. My most loyal friend & Best friend besides my amazing husband Scott as well as my oldest son Chris..would be my truest, BESTEST girlfriend of 27 years Melanie Byrd. Not only have we made childhood memories together that we still laugh about, but she has seen me thru some of the hardest times in my life and been there thru the brightest times as well!!! She’s helped me thru the loss of my mother when i was 21yrs old, shes helped me thru the loss of a husband, supported my marriage to a wonderful man, helped support & encourage me thru my battle with TNBC cancer just 3 years ago while I was pregnant with my 5th child. She’s like a 2nd mother to my youngest son, because she kept him so much during my cancer battle so that my wonderful husband could be at my side the entire time. I’ve learned over the years the friends that are true and she is most def the truest BESTEST friend I have. I love her like a sister & I know we will be friends forever!!

  12. My best friend is my mom. She has always been there for me and loved me no matter what. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else as a mother!

  13. My most loyal friend is my husband. He has always been there for me, and I know he always will be!

  14. My most loyal friend is my husband Todd. Through thick and thin; he’s always there for me! 24 years and counting!
    Would LOVE to take my daughter to this show. She absolutely love’s WAR HORSE

  15. My most loyal friend has to be my friend Rose. We have been friends for 20 years, going strong. She has always been there for me and I for her.Though miles seperate us now, our friendship has continued to stand the test of time. I value her as a sister.
    My husbands birthday is the 20th of May so I would love to be able to take him to the show on a date….ya, a date. What’s that anyway? 🙂

  16. Well I have had friends come in and out of my life…some good and some not so much. Through all of that my Mom is the one that has always been there for me and I know as long as she is here will continue to be there for me. I hope that as my daughter grows older we will have that same kind of relationship. We share a love of horses and this would be a great show to see and her birthday is the 23rd!

  17. My most loyal and best friend has been my mom. All my ‘best’ friends come and go, although we always keep in touch, but nothing like the bond my mom and I have as best friends that talk about anything and everything. Don’t know what I would have done without her during my childrens births, my separation, divorce and now all my new changes in my life.

  18. My best friend would be Rosie! We met when we were 5 years old…She lived in the projects and her parents were mentally challenged but myself and my family have always stuck by her side and protected from cruel kids in the town we lived in…through out those years of tears, fun, laughing and going on long nature walks and packing miracle whip sandwiches for our lunch, we developed a bond that will never break! I can trust Rosie with anything and everything…Rosie got her masters and now works for the Government and is doing very well for her self…..she is also married but decided not to have children…so lets just say she spoils my 3 children very

  19. I had a great friend in high school. Tammie helped me through lots of tough times. When we get together now it’s like we’ve never been apart.

  20. I think my most loyal friend is my husband and then my dog, Junie. 🙂 My husband has always stood up for me and had my back .. even when I probably was in the wrong and should’ve been set straight. 🙂 My dog loves me no matter what. Even if I have a bad day, get on to her, forget to feed her on time.. she always loves me and willing follows me everywhere..

  21. My best and most loyal friend is my husband Joseph. He has been with me through everything, the divorce of my parents, the death of my grandmother, uncle, and great-grandmother, our two miscarriages, helping me when I had to commit my dad when he tried to commit suicide, moving 10 hours away from his family and the only home he has known to take care of my dad. He is my rock and hero, I can’t imagine my life without him. He is the love of my life and soulmate. And May 22nd is our 4th wedding anniversary and we haven’t gone out alone since our 3rd anniversary, so these would be awesome!

  22. My most loyal friends have been my family…. Mom, dad, husband, and daughter!!
    Always there!!

  23. I don’t think it’s cliche that many of us think of our husband. What an honor for your partner to be your most loyal friend! I know I count it as a privilege to learn about loyalty from my husband.
