You know The Arabian is just the coolest horse to work with. They just look at you like a human. Its like a light comes on when they pick something up. Very smart. My black Arabians are so fun. They dance and play, they just float when they canter. Their mane just flows in the wind. The Black Stallion had so much magic to him in the movie. He realy makes a huge impact on so many people , Kids mainly. He changed my life for the better................

I *Love* black horses. I'd probably sell a kidney for one. Isn't that why I have two?!

I am with the rest of you, I love black horses as well. My love was sparked by the movie Return to Snowy River and blown into a full blown fire with The Black Stallion. Right now I have a Percheron stud that I will be breaking to ride within the next couple of years but I have decided that I absolutely must have a black mustang.............someday. :) For now, a bay and a gray will have to suffice.

The last one with the percherons is kinda dark because it was really early in the morning. The one on the right is the stud Big John and on the left was his mate Steph. However; we lost her this month from a snake bite. :"(

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The series is to this day I think the best horse series ever produced. For years I dreamed of owning my own black horse because of that show. Always be a show that keeps it's place at the top of my list.

...Cobat's the wrong breed

I loved the Walter Farley and the Marguerite Henry books. I even found one the other weekend at a flea market I hadn't even known about in the Misty of Chincoteaque series, Sea Star. (After Stormy, the sequal to Misty.) I was like a 10 year old again, curled up with the book and back in the magic time of Paul and Maureen. I particularly like those stories, altho I read King of the Wind and Mustang, Wild Spirit of the West but I grew up on the outer banks of North Carolina, just south of the area written about, but the people and the culture was the same, even the accents. It took me back to my own childhood in so many ways, such a nice vacation. And way less than I cudda taken anywhere else, moneywise. And yes, Sham, the Godolphin Arabian from the King of the Wind, was a bay.
My dream horse would be a Fresian, or a Gypsy Vanner. I didn't care for the movie Alexander (escewed history a bit too much) but gawd they had a gorgoeus black horse for Bucephalis, didn't they?

Know thyself, know thy horse.

Yes he was stunning. It made me sick when they faced off with the elephant. I cried and cried and then cried some more. Did you know that when they were doing that stunt, the guy that played Alexander actually got trampled one time by those big ole feet? Ouch.

I love to hear all the cool stories about childhood and horse dreams.
I know The black stallion made a huge change in my life. He was special.
I never heard of Marguerite henry, misty of chincoteaque, sea star.........
I just know that the magic will always be with me.
I have a purebred Black arabian that just takes my breath away every time I see her. She is amazing. Jet black. My signatre picture is her.
