It was announced a few days ago that Blanco, known for playing Shadowfax, the Lord of All Horses, had died of liver and intestinal complications. He was widely regarded as the heart, soul, and glue of Peter Jackson's LotR trilogy.

His caretaker, Cynthia Royal, explained to theonering.net that Blanco had endured "serious issues with his intestinal tract and liver." Like a loyal friend, Royal stayed with Blanco til the bitter end. "Although my heart was breaking," she explains, "as my final gift to him, I stayed strong, balanced and focused, gently repeating “Relax Blanco. Let go. Walk into the light. Relax and let go” as the Blanco I’ve known so well and loved so deeply slipped away."

He spent much of his time on-screen with Ian McKellen. Some say they weren't fond of each other, and others say McKellen rode him everyday. Sometimes Ian referred to him by the derogatory term, "Nag". It is reported that he had once challenged McKellen to a dance off, after being accused of having two left feet. Peter Jackson, who judged the competition, said there was no clear winner.

Reports are still unclear about his age. Some say he was 25, and others have compared him to a 75 year old man. But one thing is for certain, Blanco is galloping off into the far green country under a swift sunrise.

How do they misquote Gandalf in the video title, when the video is only 9 seconds long. The quote is in the clip!

Anyway, RIP Shadowfax. Best horse ever.
It is sad.
At first I really froze, I hate titles like this. Any loss of a human character would be a terrible loss for me, but this is also sad..
