Happy Birthday, Walter

Farley and horseBorn today in Syracuse, New York, in 1916, Walter Farley ... Wow. That name brings back a lot of memories. In elementary school and junior high I read a lot of his books. The Black Stallion of course, and its sequels about him and his offspring - I still remember the one where Alec gets involved in harness racing and everything he "knows" is wrong - and The Island Stallion, and the long awaited match-up of The Black and Flame...
