365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 295: Nahar

Nahar was the white Horse of the Huntsman Oromë, whom the Valar rode through the great forests of Middle-earth before the awakening of the Elves. Brilliantly white, like new snow in daylight, Nahar may have been the ancestor of the Mearas and the horses of the Noldor. His neighing alerted Oromë to the presence of the Quendi when they came upon them for the first time; the sparks emitted from his hooves were the first light in Valinor following the darkening of the trees.
