"I was looking for a copy of episode #11 "the White Rhino" of the "Born Free"
TV series. When I was a young boy in Kenya, I was a stuntrider for the
African girl in the episode for all the horse scenes. My other stuntrider
partner who stunted for Dawn Lyn was my step-cousin, Vio Mitchell. They
actually dyed my skin (the visible parts) and stuck a wig on me. Any info
would be helpful. We didn't have TV in Africa and I have never seen the
episode. The pony incidentally was Vio's "Njeri".
