Thats what Leave It to Beaver star Jerry Mathers, who played The Beav on the classic comedy series, found out.
Mathers says there were countless cockups on the set, but one that hell never forget involved a very stubborn horse.
The Beav recalls an episode in which a trained horse was supposed to lie down, but the stallion wasnt having it.
Mathers recounts, We couldnt get the horse to lie down. They paid all this money for a horse that was supposed to lie down on cue and it absolutely wouldnt. It was so funny.
Seeing as the horse was not playing along, and animal rights werent a big deal back in those days, a vet was brought in to tranquilize the horsey.
But that didnt work out so well either.
Mathers laughs, It got so unsteady that it fell over and knocked down a wall. They had to rebuild that whole wall!
