Detailed plot synopsis reviews of King of the Wind

Agba is a boy who works in the palace, can't talk, and takes care of one of the Sultan's mares.   The mare died in childbirth, but the foal lived. Agba took care of the foal and nursed it to health and the foal became very fast.   The Sultan called all of his horse boys to tell them that he was choosing six horses to give to the King of France. Agba got chosen and was sent in a ship to France, but on the way, the horses and their horse boys were not fed nearly enough, so when they got there the king sent all of the boys away but Agba's horse, Sham, who he gave to the cook.   The cook tried very hard to get Sham to obey him but Sham would only obey Agba, so the cook sold Sham to a cruel carter. The carter mistreated Sham and Agba had no way to earn money and no one to care for him, so he had to take care of himself.
