Black Beauty is a high bred horse, born and raised in the pastures of Victorian England. His first owners have been very kind and gentle, so Beauty has a very agreeable disposition. As soon as he is old enough, Beauty is sold to new owners. Eventually these owners decide to move, so he is sold again. Years pass, and Beauty is owned by kind and cruel people alike. He experiences the freedom of country pastures and the difficulties of city life. Throughout it all, Beauty makes new friends and works hard and please the people he serves. Though he is confronted with many obstacles, Beauty faces each one with patience and courage, always remembering to try his best.
