Reintroducing myself and searching for a story

Hello again from southeastern Ohio, where I still have Foundation Shetland ponies, but I don't breed them any more. They are getting old, and well, so am I!

Does anyone know where I can find the old horse story "Coalie Bay" online? I've searched on Google and other search engines, with zero results. I have the book around here somewhere but I can't find it, and I wanted to share it with Barbara Wheeler on her Facebook photography page. Thanks!

I remember that story. The name is a little different, "Coaly-Bay, the Outlaw Horse" by Ernest Thompson Seton. Here is a link to a .pdf of the story: "Coaly-Bay, the Outlaw Horse" IN WilliamsMabel-1938v07 -

I have a collection of short stories by Seton called Wild Animals I have Known, an original late 19th century printing which I inherited from my grandmother. There's one about a horse in there, about a pacing black mustang stallion.

Seton was a naturalist and a marvelous illustrator, among other things.
