This compilation of mining anecdotes honours the horses and pit ponies who, in harsh and often intolerable conditions, served and suffered to help win the coal. It is also a tribute to those miners who cared for their charges with deep affection and compassion. Our contributors, many of whom were Bevin Boys, give voice to innocent animals and by so doing, they project a light that shines forth from a darkened world of toil and sacrifice for future generations to acknowledge and embrace. They represent all who love and revere God’s creatures, from whom we can learn so much and remind us of the abundant blessings bestowed upon mankind by our animal friends. They ask for so little save tender care and repay us a thousandfold. Furthermore, they reveal the aesthetic talents inherent in the fabric and structure of mining communities where underground survival was at a premium, where tragedy was a frequent visitor and where courage, loyalty, comradeship and humour prevailed.
