Joey, the horse puppet from the touring show of "War Horse," meets Rjuka, a six year-old Norweigian Fjord horse from Park City's National Ability Center at the Capitol Theatre Wednesday April 23, 2014. Joey's puppeteers are James Duncan, head, Brian Burns, heart, and Aaron Haskeii, hind. The puppet weighs 120 pounds, with a frame of mostly cane that was soaked, bent and stained; it was made by a team of 14 people. An aluminum frame along the spine, lined partly with leather, allows the horse to be ridden.
