Netflix's The Witcher has shared an exclusive behind-the-scenes feature on Roach, Geralt's horse, as part of its ongoing series of "Witchmas" gifts on social media. What that looks like is fairly simple: it's a minute-long video of Roach the horse just... being a horse. Showing its teeth, sticking its tongue out, and generally being very horse-like in appearance.
Previous Witchmas gifts have included some lovely photos of everyone's favorite bard Jaskier, photos of Season 2 teasing new locations, and even a glorious bloopers video from the first season. The next Witchmas gift is a social media vote away from being yet another Law of Surprise gift, much like many of the aforementioned ones, or the first look at the logo for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, the upcoming anime film spinoff.
