365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 93: Bill the Pony

Bill the Pony was purchased from Bill Ferny in Bree as a replacement for Merry’s ponies, which had been led out of the stables at the Prancing Pony Inn. Bill was in extremely poor condition, due to mistreatment at the hands of his previous owner. Samwise Gamgee looked after Bill, whom he loved dearly, and the pony soon recovered. He was of great value to the Company of the Ring, carrying Frodo to Rivendell and later acting as a pack-animal. Though he was set loose outside the doors of Moria, he managed to find his way back to Bree, where he was looked after until being reunited with his master following the War of the Ring.
