Black Beauty Farmer Gray was the kindest master in the world. He was proud of me, and called me Black Beauty. I had a white spot on my forehead and one white foot. He trained me to pull a carriage. Then I learn to wear a saddle and carry a rider on my back. One day, Farmer Gray said. “ A good horse like you do not live on a farm. So you will be going to live with Squire Gordon and his family. “I was very sad to leave my mother and my home.” However, when I saw my masters I knew I would be happy with them. They lived in a big mansion and welcomed me warmly. Mrs. Gordon was pale and ill, but she smiled when she saw me. The groom who looked after the stables was John Manly. He loved horses. He introduced me to Merrylegs, the children’s pony, Ginger, and old mare. She was not a bad horse, but had been ill-treated in the past.

Many parts of islands are still covered by dense forests. We can find them in Kalimantan, Sumatra, Sulawesi, and Irian Jaya. Our forest produce timbers, rattans, resins, rubbers, and many other important exporting commodities. The forest also have other functions namely as reservation, prevention of the flood, purification of air pollution and recreation objects. The forests can reserve a lot of water during the rainy season. The government builds reservoirs and the farmer can use it in the dry season. They prevent the rivers from flood because not all of the water comes to the rivers.

So, we should have to do our best to keep the forests safe and prevent them from damage.
