The inscription on Snowmane's
from The Return of the King
V 6The Battle of the Pelennor Fields
Snowmane was the steed of King Théoden, on which he rode to the Battle of the Pelennor. In that battle the horse was driven mad by the approach of the Lord of the Nazgûl, and, shot by a dart, he fell and crushed his master. After the battle a grave was dug for Snowmane, and a stone placed on it inscribed in the languages of Gondor and of the Rohirrim. This was Snowmane's Howe, a green grave-mound on the Fields of the Pelennor.
