Guess A Quote [3.30.15]

Black Stallion [Guess a Quote]Hello everyone! I hope your spring has been more spring-ish than ours has been so far. It snowed twice week! The weather people say warmer weather is coming, and I hope they’re right. I like the cold, but it’s time for the snow to quit.

The last quote came from The Black Stallion by Walter Farley. Most of you already knew that! CJ, writefury, R.G. Nairam, Lina, Elisabeth Sullivan, proverbs31teen, Jonathan G., Amanda, and OnionTea all got it right!

With that positive guessing record, I thought we’d stick to the animal theme with another of my favorite horse stories. I’ve done a quote from this one once before, but this time it’s the opening line of the book.

In the northwestern slice of Africa known as Morocco, a horseboy stood, with broom in hand, in the vast courtyard of the royal stables of the Sultan. He was waiting for dusk to fall.

Happy Guessing!

    Yay! I know this, too! It’s King of the Wind by Marguerite Henry. One of my favorites to read and read aloud!

  7. King of the Wind by Marguerite Henry. Awesome book!

  8. Hmm… don’t recognize it, but I haven’t read many horse books so that’s no surprise! It kinda’ reminded me of one that I started (and never finished) so I checked, but it wasn’t it. I didn’t think that one happened in Africa anyway. A horse story in Africa sounds unusual! Can’t wait to see if I’ve heard of it! 🙂
