    Horse Books

    Goldilockz's thread on horse magazines sent me to Amazon to check out what other mags I might like to suscribe to...which lead me to search on books about horses. Not educational, rather fiction...from way back in the day.

    Does anyone remember the Billy & Blaze series by C.W. Anderson? With those gorgeous pencil illustrations? Or Sam Savitts Vicky & the Black Horse? Or a book about a girl and a throroughbred called Sweet Running Filly?

    I'm now going crazy adding all of the books I read as a kid to my wish list and will slowly collect all that I can remember. But if anyone has any other suggestions for me, I'm all ears!

    Thanks for listening...that was rather random wasn't it?

    I was a Marguerite Henry fanatic as a little kid. My librarian got tired of signing out Album of Horses for me, lol. King of the Wind is still high on my list. I remember another book I really liked, I think it was called Year of the Black Pony.

    I second Marguerite Henry. Also loved the Black Stallion books, Heartland series, My Friend Flicka, Beauty. If you want something a little more adult-oriented, try Riding Lessons and Flying Changes.

    *mental head slap*

    How could I have forgotten Maguerite Henry (Misty of Chincoteague) and Walter Farley (Black Stallion)??? I devoured them all back in the day. So I'm adding those to my wishlist as I've not a clue what happened to my copies.

    I do still have Black Beauty somewhere around here. And I have read the Sara Gruen books...but thanks for that suggestion.

    And Dick Francis? My all time favourite! I have all of his books and have reread them many many times.
