Fatty Lumpkin

Tom Bombadil’s pony

A pony kept by Tom Bombadil. Fatty Lumpkin (sometimes called just 'Lumpkin') was rarely ridden by Tom, and spent much of his time roaming free on the Barrow-downs. After their encounter with a Barrow-wight, Tom rode along with Frodo and his friends for a while on Fatty Lumpkin. The hobbits' ponies had developed a strong friendship with Lumpkin during their time at Tom's house, and it was this that led them back to Tom Bombadil after they escaped from Bree.
