Essence

At first glance she seemed solid, unbreakable, and so very strong, but it took only one quick tragic blow to reveal the true nature of her essence, the soft, yielding molten core of pure love and compassion so long hidden under her outer armor.

Black horse

All black horses will stand forever in the shadow of Black Beauty and his sad story, As a child I read the book many many times, never failing to shed copious tears as Beauty changed hands, suffered loss and pain, yet always rose again to stand tall and strong with a heart of pure gold. All these many years later I still feel the same as with my grandchildren I have watched every remake of the movie version. Black Beauty remains the standard for all black horses and always will.
