Alec quote and a Q
Hi. Is anybody out there? I have a quotation to toss out to you. A real nice one at that. "I don't know how to explain it, but without The Black, I'm not Alec Ramsay. I just wanna race him as long as I can. As long as he'll let me." Now here's my question: do you remember which Alec Ramsay - the movie Alec, Kelly Reno, or the t.v.Alec, Richard Ian Cox, said those exact words? ~ ~ bruce

"The Deep. Introspective Alec"

Gee. I wonder if I'm the only remaining one who remembers from that long ago. That it was from the t.v. series THE ADVENTURES OF THE BLACK STALLION when Alec said those heartfelt words. Taking nothing away from Kelly-Alec (whom we got to know first), Richard Ian had a way with Alec Ramsay. It was in what was/is maybe my #1 fave t.v.episode, "Hard Road Home," after Alec is doing a timed practice run ontop of Black, and he is thrown and gets hurt pretty bad: 8 cracked ribs and a "torn up knee."

But here's the part that still puzzles me: after Alec is fairly recuperated (several weeks), he starts to try riding Black again, but Black WON'T LET HIM STAY ON! Alec tries SOoooo hard, again & again, but The Black fights his attempts each time. Why would a horse with such a close attachment to his rider and 'best friend' turn on him that way? Henry, Belle, Nicole, & everyone tried to reconcile the 2 of them, even reverting to subversion! (for shame). Altho this curiosity of mine was never answered, Alec and Black finally made their peace, and the sad, hopeless tears turned into tears of happiness. At the end, Alec Richard (my nickname for him), with his wit, and handsome, laid back smile, called everybody around him "phonies!" WAY TO GO ALEC.
