Would someone be so kind as to look up and add the quote regarding Shadowfax standing before the Lord of the Nazgul at the gate of Minas Tirith? --Ted C 17:05, 24 October 2006 (CDT)

". . .all fled before his face. All save one. There waiting, silent and still in the space before the Gate, sat Gandalf upon Shadowfax: Shadowfax who alone among the free horses of the earth endured the terror, unmoving, steadfast as a graven image in Rath Dínen."
The Siege of Gondor
Notice it says free horses. --Narfil Palùrfalas 17:33, 24 October 2006 (CDT)
As upposed to 'enslaved horses' in the service of Mordor like those used by the Nazgul in their 'Black Rider'-form? Unsigned comment by Aerandir (talk • contribs).
Aerandir brings up a good point. At first I thought it meant those horses not bearing riders, but I bet it does mean the horses that were not enslaved by Sauron. --Hyarion 19:17, 24 October 2006 (CDT)
