** In the 1995 animated adaptation, the last time Beauty sees [[spoiler:Ginger]] is at a fair where she appears to be in much better health and is being sold to a young girl, implying she got a happy ending in contrast to the original.

* AdaptationExpansion: Many versions, including the 1994 one, expands on the relationship between Beauty and Joe to being that of best friends. In the book, they don't share much of a relationship, and while their reunion is more of an afterthought, the 1994 film version changed it to be a huge TearJerker.

''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.

** Early in the novel a nobleman's son treats ginger like a furry motorcycle to hop on, ride at top speed through long and rigorous race courses, then dump back in the stall. The strain on her body permanently damages her bronchial track to the point that she can never run or jump as well again. Rather than give her the year of pasture rest she needs to heal, she's sold as a work horse, which strains her physical health more and more until [[spoiler: she's driven to an early death]].
