    I would love to try and help you, but could you make your point a little more clear please? Also, I don't mean to insult or bother you, but would you mind using proper grammar? It would make it easier for people to understand and help you.

    So, you're asking if other people have heard of a book series called "The Black Stallion" and you're complaining about how hard it is to save up money, right? I know the feeling! It's really hard trying to save your money, but it's a good habit to form.

    I've never heard of "The Black Stallion", sorry.

    I *think* I understand. I'd say your first thing would be to look at your income and where it comes from (side jobs, allowance, whatever) and how often you get it and how much it is. If you already have enough saved for the other books (I think that's what you meant?) then you only have to figure out how long it will be before you need the money for the new book and how much it will cost. That tells you how much you need to save each week (or month) to have enough when it's available. The rest of your money goes towards your savings and chicken expenses. Unless you have to have a certain amount for those in a certain time frame, too, then you'll have to prioritize that first then once you have it all, save more heavily towards the book.

    Find some extra jobs/chores you can do to earn some extra money to help speed the process along. Dog walking, plant/garden watering while people are gone, taking care of mail and pets for people on vacation, weeding, etc.

    i am not into soda's that much and my mom buys me chips sometime's and i am busting with joy and i just feel happy nobody every heard of it and i saw the book cover of 'the black stallion's ghost' and i like the cover and it was in 1.99 or .99 you just have to love second hand stores that have books and if you are wonder where i saw it it was Amazon to pre-odoer it or B&N to let you know

    Let's see I was just going through all the books I read as a kid and kept in a box. I was very horse crazy and a total book worm [​IMG]

    The Black Stallion
    The Black Stallion Returns
    Son of The Black Stallion
    The Island Stallion
    The Black Stallion and Satan
    The Black Stallion's Blood Bay Colt
    The Island Stallion's Fury
    The Black Stallion's Filly
    The Black Stallion Revolts
    The Black Stallion's Sulky Colt
    The Island Stallion Races
    The Black Stallion's Courage

    Edited to add:
    You can find most of these at the library to read for free. Marguerite Henry is also a really good horse book author. I love her Chincoteague stories. I seldom by "new" books anymore. I read them so fast and $20-$30 is a lot. I wait till they go on sale at least or show up at the used book stores:)
