Fatty Lumpkin was rarely ridden by Tom, and spent much of his time roaming free on the Barrow-downs. While Frodo and his friends stayed at Tom's, Fatty became friends with their ponies, Sharp-ears, Bumpkin, Wise-nose, Swish-tail, and White-socks.
After their encounter with a Barrow-wight, the hobbits's ponies became so frightened that they ran off to find Fatty. Tom called them all back with the names he had given them and he rode along with the hobbits for a while on Fatty Lumpkin.
