Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

Factual error: In the scene where Spirit's mother is giving birth to Spirit, after she has him it shows Spirit as a newborn, with teeth. Newborn horses don't have a full set of teeth. (00:04:23)

Other mistake: Fleeing with Little Creek from the fort, Spirit destroys small railing to free horses tied to it. But after the pole gets torn off, it leaves an empty space on the ground, without any hole or at least broken remains.

Question: Why does the Colonel let Spirit escape at the end of the movie? I know it's meant to be a sign of respect. But why would they respect each other? In my opinion they have no reasons to have mutual respect.

Answer: Because the colonel saw that Spirit and Little Creek had a strong bond, and how hard Spirit had worked for his freedom.

Answer: You don't have to have mutual respect to do what is right or just. Letting Spirit escape was the morally right thing for the Colonel to do.
