Oh man, the Black Stallion books. I actually collect them, as in, I have four different sets of the books, as well as a few random other copies, all different publish dates, none a complete set. I don't think I've read all of them, but most of them, as well as the more recent ones written by the younger Farley.

Darn the segue this thread took... now I had to go look at my current Black Stallion books - discards from my school library, same covers as the ones from my childhood but NO ILLUSTRATIONS WHAT IS THAT. And now I'm trying to talk myself out of replacing them all via eBay and kicking myself for ever letting them go in the first place. :-/

(Also, I just always assumed Black Pepper was Black Minx's filly from Wintertime :mrgreen: )

Adding the Japanese horse that Tachyon posted about, Immortal, because if he isn't black I don't know what is:

It's been approximately a billion years since I read these books since I am now officially an old--but I thought this too.

You mean. . . there are MORE Black Stallion books "written by the younger Farley. . . ?" WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN THE LAST FIFTY YEARS!!!!

Does it say something about me that I remember the Black Minx/Wintertime romance more clearly than some of my early dates?
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Idolo Portena finished a decent third in the Razorback at Oaklawn today. He is a handsome hunk of a horse, and I think he will improve off this race.
