More About This Title Fabish


A powerful, moving story based on a true story about one heroic horse who saved others during a bushfire. Fabish had once been a racehorse. Now he lived in a paddock with the frisky young horses and showed them how to behave. But one hot summer day, a wild wind blew up, and the horses were nervous and flighty. This was the day that became known as Black Saturday. When Fabish smelled smoke he knew that fire was coming. The trainer threw open the gate and told Fabish, "Go now! Take care of the boys." The horses galloped away. Where would Fabish lead them? And could he keep them safe?
