Hasufel was the grey-coated steed of Gárulf of Rohan. After the loss of his master in the Ambush at Fangorn Forest‎, Hasufel followed the éored of Éomer until he lent it to Aragorn when they met in the northern fields of Rohan.[1]

The hardy creature saw many adventures, including the Battle of the Hornburg, before Aragorn was brought his own horse, Roheryn, by the Rangers of the North.

[edit] Etymology

According to Robert Foster, hasufel means "dark skin" in Old English.[2] Hasu means "grey".
