One thing I liked about Black Beauty was that it showed both sides of the horse's life. By this, I mean that it not only showed how life could be miserable with a ruthless owner, but also how it could be quite pleasant when placed with a kind owner who cared about and for his animals. I am glad they did this because yes, some people do not treat animals fairly, but others truly care about their well-being. It was more realistic this way. It also made the book less biased. While I was very sad about the way his life turned out with some of his owners, I was also comforted that some people took care of him.
