The horse of Húrin Thalion

The steed of Húrin the Lord of Dor-lómin, whose name means simply 'noble horse'. It was on Arroch that Húrin rode away to the great battle that became known as the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. It seems that Arroch must have been lost during the battle: at least, during Húrin's last stand against the Trolls of Gothmog, his horse was no longer with him.
