Black Beauty's earliest days are spent growing up happily with his mother, Dutchess and then working in Squire Gordon's stables at Birtwick Park where he meets his friends Ginger and Merrylegs. His later years are not so happy, and the horse endures fires, floods and hard times with harsh masters, before he at last finds a happy home with his old friends.
