I can say with confidence that it was NOT among Farley's best. :mrgreen:

My personal faves are Black Minx, and The Blood Bay Colt and its 'twin' book, the name of which escapes me now.

IIRC, that would The Black Stallion's Sulky Colt (published 1954), the follow-up to The Blood Bay Colt.

There are parts of Son of the Black Stallion stamped forever into my memory...like Henry's hot potato 'cure' for Satan's dangerous tendency to bite. :o
Has anyone here ever tried it?

That was actually Black Minx...and she had been spoiled by her previous owners. I never forgot that scene! :lol:

Let's see...Son of the Black Stallion, his name was Satan? He and Henry had a battle almost unto death, and then I think the colt became tractable afterwards. Another memorable scene.

I think I have all the series alart from one or two of the latter books.

IIRC, Satan bolts and jumps the tall fence around his paddock, and the lead rope trailing from his halter gets caught on the fence. He nearly throttles himself, but Henry frees him in time. The colt shows his gratitude by not trying to kill him anymore. :P ;) :lol:

And of course Henry inevitably develops an affection for him. Also wasn't Black Sand previously abused by owners as well?

I can't even deal with Black Sand, that touched way too close to home with what happened during the race.

[left intentionally vague so as not to spoil, plus it's just upsetting] :(((((((((((((
