'For he was Shadow...., he, ...fax, was ...lord of all hor..., ...dow..., and he, ...fax, lord...'
'For he was Shadowfax,
Lord of all Horses.'
It is a fragment of The Mearas by Philippa Boyens:
'In the distance they saw him,
White sun caught in his mane.
Logn they called him,
But he would not come.
for he was Shadowfax,
Lord of all Horses.
And he answered only to one.
