April night, a drunk ruins me. ("How it Ended" Black Beauty, chapter 25)
They can suffer. You can talk. ("Principles of Morals and Legislation", Jeremy Bentham)
Black Beauty's first person narrator suffers at the hands and whims of many careless human masters. When he stumbles and throws Rueben, Beauty has to endure both the physical pain of his injuries and, even if momentarily, the harsh judgements on his character. In the following chapter, forensic evidence exonerates him but he is still sold because his knees are bruised and so starts a chain of events for him and many horses who are "abandoned without redress to the caprice of a tormentor" (Bentham qtd in AR 9).
