Bill the Pony by John Howe.

"Bill" was Samwise Gamgee's pony, named for its original owner Bill Ferny. The beast travelled with the Company of the Ring through the leagues of Eriador to the West-gate of Moria. For fear of his safety, he was released into the wild, to make his way back to Bree, where Sam, who was fond of the pony, was reunited at the Prancing Pony towards the end of the War of the Ring.

Portrayal in Adaptations

2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Bill can be found lost just west of Moria. There is a quest where the player has to escort Bill to safety from a pack of wolves.
