Buck Movie Tickets: Name This Horse

When my mom was a kid, she entered a Sears contest to win a horse. She just had to give the horse a winning name. Her dad convinced her to name the horse "Roebuck," adding "you'll win for sure!"

She didn't win.

But we're giving you a chance to win...well, not a horse, but the next best thing. Well, maybe not the next best thing (which would actually be a pony), but a really great prize for animal lovers and cineastes alike.

We're giving away passes to a very special screening of Buck, a documentary and official Sundance selection about real-life horse whisperer Buck Branneman. Branneman will also be on hand for a special Q&A following the screening, so come prepared for a lesson in human-equine communication.

Now, the good stuff. Getting a pass is easy. All you have to do for a chance to win is name this weird-looking horse:

Funny Horse

Submit your names in the comments below. Folks with the best names will win tickets for two to see the film.

The fine print: Screening is Wednesday, June 22 at 7 p.m. at Edwards Greenway Grand Palace, 3839 Weslayan St. Arrive early; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and these tickets do not guarantee admission.
