When Black Beauty was little he was called "Blackie" because she was a dull shade of black and was just a foal. As Blackie grew he became very beautiful with a white star on his forehead, one white hoof and a small patch of white on his back.

One day, Ginger told Beauty all about her life. When she was just a young foal she was taken from her Mother and put in a pasture with other foals with no one to take care of her. There was also a young boy who would through stones at her in the pasture and sometimes he would through them harder than usual and they would hurt allot. When it came time for her to be broken in she was treated very roughly and no one took the time to try to make her feel better or heal her wounds. Then she got a knew master who worked her to hard and gave her no rest ,but one day this was to much for Ginger and she began to kick until he was off of her and she galloped off into the fields. It wasn't until mid evening when a kind man came and got her , but even though he was kind his master wasn't he wanted nothing more than to look very fashionable so he kept Ginger's bit so tight her mouth bleed and her head very high so that she couldn't move it.

On their journey it was quite the storm and while they were riding a tree truck fell right into the middle of the road leaving no room for Beauty to get by so they had to turn back. When they came to the bride they had just crossed earlier Beauty would not cross the master tried to urge him but he wouldn't budge. It was then when a man came running out yelling Stop! Stop! the bridge is broken , when the water rose it broke the middle off the bridge. The Master thanked Beauty for saving his life and called him a hero.

James would take Ginger and beauty into big cities but one time in particular he was staying the night and the stable the horses were in caught on fire and James went in and lead the horses out . Allot of people were amazed that the horses trusted him and didn't go hysterical on him.

When James was just about ready to leave they got a new groom a young lad who didn't know much about hoses but was willing to learn. His name was Joe Green. When James left everyone was sad but things slowly perked up. Then one night when Beauty went to get the doctor because the mistress had become very I'll , he ran as fast as he could and took John there to get the Doc. But the Doc's horse was sick so John walked home and the Doc. took Beauty, even though he wasn't a very good rider Beauty ran as fast and hard as he could. When he got back Joe Green considered that he would be hot so gave him some fresh hay and oats and didn't cover him up, but this made Beauty very ill because he began to get very cold and sick when John got back he covered him up and yelled at Joe for being so ignorant to the situation. Beauty got better but the mistress didn't and he doctor said she had to live in a warmer condition so Merrylegs was sold to the vicar who promised never to sell her, and Ginger and beauty were sold to their masters friend Mr. York who's mistress was very fashionable. He made them wear a check rein right away and hold there heads very high, but one day Ginger lost her cool and went nuts. She soon got sold but Black Beauty didn't. They were both sad that she had to go, but there was nothing neither of them could do. Soon afterwards Beauty's master went away and left Ruben Smith the town drunk incharge.
