A Real Life Black Beauty Moment Caught On Video

Have you ever read the wonderful book Black Beauty, set in Victorian times and chronicling the life of a beautiful black horse, by English author Anna Sewell? I had this book as a child and loved it so much. It started a passion for horse´s that I still have to this day.

The book is written from the perspective of Black beauty and all the horse´s he meets throughout his life, in good times and bad.

Yesterday I came across a video showing the reunion between 3 horse´s, one of which had been sold four years previously, but is now back with his former friends and owner.

It´s clear from watching this lovely video that the horse´s never forgot each other, which just goes to show that animals do have long term memories and love for one another. Watching the video reminded me so much of Black beauty meeting up with long lost friends, but in real life, not in the pages of a book.

I hope you enjoy watching this reunion as much as I did. Here´s a link to it.

I loved reading Black Beauty when I was young, a real classic story.

I used to teach Black Beauty when I taught literature.

Black Beauty was one of the very books that I read as a kid! Didn't they make that into a movie with Elizabeth Taylor ?

Red velvet was the film you might be thinking of, that was about a race horse though I think.

Anything with animals were my reads of choice. Call of the wild, the Silver brumbie series, to name a couple more.

A great choice, not just for its literary value, but also the message it puts across.

Yes of course you are right on , it was called National Velvet ! The actress in Black Beauty around that time was Mona Freeman :)

Nationla velvet of course, well I was almost right on emoticon :winking:

If you love horses, you should watch the Canadian television series Heartland.

I've read "Call of the Wild" but hadn't heard of the Silver Brumbie. Maybe something to get my grandchildren and then I can read it too.

If I ever come across it I surely will emoticon :smile:

They do remember more than we give them credit for.

I too have read ''Black Beauty''. Like elephants, horses also have long term memories.

If anyone knows the truth of this it has to be you. I noticed as she´s leading Henry to the field, he´s licking and chewing so obviously asking to be accepted even before he got let loose in the field with the other 2. I´m sure you noticed how polite and respectful he was on entry too.

Yes they do talk but not in ways a lot of people understand. That is one of them

Talking about memory our pet Preiti displays that. Whenever I call out the name of one of our maids who left us a long time ago, she runs to the door expecting to see her.

Hollyhocks100 What a lovely video! I wandered off to post it on FB and send to a couple of friends then realized this morning I had never come back to say how much I enjoyed it emoticon :smile: .

Hollyhocks100 wrote on May 13, 2015, 11:29 AM

Oh bless.

So glad you enjoyed it too. No denying they remembered each other was there?
