As a colt, Black Beauty was raised well and with his mother, so when he is sold to Squire Gordan, he is one of the finest horses ever. But when the Squire needs to move because of his wife's bad health, Black Beauty must be sold. After this, Black Beauty is sold again and again to new owners. Some are absolutely terrific, while others are rude and unkind. Will Black Beauty end up with a mean owner? Or will he spend his last days with a kind one? I didn't like some parts because it felt like the author was trying to tell me how to take care of a horse, but most parts were really good. This book is perfect for any horse lovers.
