    1. I loved this true story written in verse about a wonder of a horse, who was quiet and had the knack, and love, of standing still. This isn’t the usual positive attribute of a horse, so you’ll need to read all the ways that “worked” positively only because Blackie stood still. He was so beloved that a memorial can be found where his final days were spent, a memorial to the horse that was always there, the friendly greeter to hundreds who saw and visited him.
