BLACK FURY "Fatal Rendezvous"

In Westerns, horses are intelligent.
In fact, sometimes they're more intelligent than humans... this tale from Black Fury #16 shows!
Unlike The Lone Ranger's Silver or Roy Rogers' Trigger, both of whom had their own comics, Black Fury was no one's property.
He was the lead stallion of a herd of wild horses wandering the American SouthWest.
Occasionally, he ran into humans (and even helped them), but his priority was his (and his mares') survival.
One of the unique aspects to the writing was that he interacted with all humans (Native Americans or settlers) without prejudice.
The writer is unknown, but the artist for this tale was Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko, who rarely did Westerns.
