Horse of a Different Color
Four separate horses were used to create the effect of an animal that changes color from moment to moment; the filmmakers found that multiple color changes on a single horse were too time-consuming. The ASPCA refused to allow the horses to be dyed; instead, technicians tinted them with lemon, cherry, and grape flavored powdered gelatin to create a spectrum of white, yellow, red, and purple. They had to be prevented from licking the colored powder off themselves between takes. This is why the scenes were cast as quickly as possible, as the horses, like any animal, would lick the sweet powder off, but this would discolor the horses, thus making the scenes including the horses very quick.
