* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Beauty ends up in a good home with the promise of never being sold again. Ginger however continues to suffer under one cruel owner after the other, ultimately killing her. Combine that with Beauty [[TearJerker seeing her dead body, hoping her pain is finally at an end, and the ending with him dreaming about the days the two were together, along with Merrylegs]]]] and you'll find yourself in serious need of a tissue.

'''''Black Beauty''''' is an 1877 polemic novel by Anna Sewell, tracing the life of the titular fictional horse from colthood to retirement. Today it is considered a classic of children's literature; however, originally it was not written for children, but as an effort to draw attention to the wildly varying treatment of horses in Victorian England. As a result it contains mini-lectures on everything from bits and blinkers to broken knees. Along the way Beauty also provides a horse's perspective on the human capacity for cruelty and kindness, and comparisons between the treatment of animals and the treatment of poor working-class humans.
