The Story of Bucephalas ( Alexander's Steed ) -:
 
/images/rider.jpg Alexander's horse Bucephalas was a magnificent black stallion which had a white blaze on his forehead and had been a gift to Alexander. Originally Phillip II was going to purchase the horse for himself, but thought Bucephalas was too unmanageable. Alexander made a wager with his father that he could tame and ride the horse, for Alexander had noticed Bucephalas was afraid of his shadow on the ground. After turning the horse into the sun and away from the shadow, Alexander quickly quieted the mount down and proceeded to ride the horse. From that day on, Bucephalas was Alexander the Great's horse. Who carried Alexander into most of his battles over the ensuing years, when Bucephalas finally died in 326 B. C. Alexander had a state funeral for him and built a city in India where he died, naming it Bucephala.
