Snowmane and King Theoden

Theoden rides Snowmane.

Snowmane was the name of King Theoden's horse. When Snowmane was hit by a black dart in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, the horse fell onto the king, crushing him, which led to his death. The Witch-king's Fell beast landed upon the body of Snowmane just prior to being slain by Éowyn.

After the Battle of the Pelennor Fields was over, Snowmane was buried and a stone set up to mark his grave. On the gravestone was written, in the languages of both Gondor and Rohan:

Faithful servant yet master's bane,
Lightfoot's foal, swift Snowmane.

The grass flourished on Snowmane's Howe, as the grave was called, but not on the ground where the Fell beast was burned.
