Students meet horse of a different color

The horse from “War Horse” isn't a horse, of course.

It's a 120-pound, life-size puppet, built mostly of cane and whose 20 moving joints are controlled by three puppeteers.

On Tuesday, students participating in Art Day at the Straz Center got an up-close look at the puppet, which goes by the name of Joey.

“War Horse” is playing at the Straz through Sunday.
