Shadowfax has died
Such a fine horse!
Apparently there were two Shadowfaxes; the horse used in long shots was called Demero and died of melanoma several years ago. The horse that just died very recently was called Blanco; he was the one used in close-ups, and is the one seen in that magnificent scene in The Two Towers when Shadowfax is called by Gandalf, and we see him run from a distance and right up to Ian McKellen. Done in one take, no less!!!
Rest In Peace, Blanco!!!
Sorry if this Post isn’t correctly formatted, I have never started a post to FR before!!
Was Shadowfox a Freeper?
Beautiful horse. How sad.
There is also a pretty good New Age/Jazz band by that name.
That’s what I was thinking.
Think Lord of the Rings
Shadowfax was Galdalf’s Horse, a gift from the Rohan
Is news of your demise premature or should we offer prayers for your family?
He was but since he said he would vote for Brown for Senator, they kicked him onto the race track.
Rumors of your death are, one hopes, greatly exaggerated...
What a shame. Beautiful horse. Glad his suffering is over. Anyone know how old he was?
Yeah, that’s why I clicked the article.
The New Age is over, long live the New New Age.
