History[edit | edit source]
- "This is the water
And this is the well.
Drink full and descend.
The horse is the white of the eyes and dark within."
A white horse briefly materialized in Sarah Palmer's room on the night of February 22, 1989, as Sarah lay in bed, having just been drugged by her husband Leland. This occurred just as Leland was preparing to molest their daughter, Laura.
The following month, Sarah crawled through the house, trying to maintain consciousness. She was shocked to see the horse appear in their living room just before she passed out on the floor. While she was unconscious, Leland (controlled by BOB) attacked and beat their niece Maddy Ferguson to death.
After crossing, Cooper spotted a kiddie ride of a white horse outside Eat at Judy's in Odessa, Texas. A waitress at the diner, Carrie Page, had a small white horse figurine in front of a blue plate sitting on her mantelpiece.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
In the documentary Lynch (One), David Lynch recounts being deeply affected by a scene in the French slaughterhouse documentary Blood of the Beasts, in which a tall and majestic white horse is abruptly slaughtered and its blood collected in a square box.
