Welcome. We're blogging about famous horses in history from the time of Alexander the Great's horse Bucephalus forward, the not-so-famous horse that has touched your life in a significant way, or the horses in memorable stories. I've begun with a horse named Black Jack, who became familiar to me during my research for the historical novel, The Woman Who Loved Horses. Black Jack doesn't appear in my novel, and in fact, only about 10% of my research material made its way into the story. But that's writing, and this is about horses. Please tell us about one in a post.
