Say no more, Marbys! <3 Scadulaf to the list!

Didn't mean to throw pressure on you if you felt like you had to prove a case for Scadulaf.  A simple confirmation of "Yes, make him a Chief" could have done the job perfectly.  But I love reading your ramblings/thought process behind Scadulaf's and Glossel's relationships with Thengel.  Scadulaf's history with Thengel is so touching (and hilarious -lol- the dirt, makes sense to me and I'd get a kick out of reading that!), and the death of a beloved friend is...  *sniff* My heart.

Ugh. I'm all for making a bunch of horse apps. I'd swipe up Scadulaf and all the other Mearas characters in a heartbeat.  But common sense and time restraints... I can barely keep up with Shadowfax's threads as is.  But we'll see... We'll see.  :-*

Understood. (with the books v. film rules)  Sure, Brego could be a mearh.  Or any horse with some Aman/Elf horse ancestry in him.  Even lesser horses, I'd like to think their average brains could be a level smarter than average horses IRL.  But this is fantasy and I was just shooing those hypercritical thoughts away.   XP  Yes, Mearas! Brego could be!

Something I've found interesting in the films:

Theoden rides a white horse during the warg attack (The Two Towers), but switches to a brown horse when he arrives at Helm's Deep - during and right after the battle of Helm's Deep - as well as Saruman's death scene and return to Edoras (Return of the King).  He then switches back to a white horse (clearly Snowmane) when the Rohirrim leave for Gondor.

If both white horses are Snowmane… My guess is that Snowmane was injured during the warg attack. Not too severely, in that he could still walk to Helm's Deep, and still have enough strength to put up a last fight if necessary.  Snowmane would probably be stubborn about wanting to carry Theoden, despite his injuries; while Theoden, in concern for Snowmane, would rather have Snowmane heal and stay with the women and children in the caves. Maybe even charge Snowmane with one last request in helping Eowyn flee into the mountains, should Helm's Deep fall?  (ooo, that'd be a such a good thread idea! between Theoden and Eowyn and...Snowmane? time to make another app!)

Another possibility is that Theoden set Snowmane free after the warg attack, and then reunited later at Edoras. But I doubt either one would be so easily willing to part with each other, unless if it was for more important reasons I haven't yet thought of. (I personally like the other idea better)

Could've just been the standard 'detail fail' you sometimes get in films. xD Not that your ideas aren't a possibility for definitely interesting filler ICly. What do you think, Pip?

'be humble, stand proud, and don't be afraid of your fears.'

I'm taking the whole "films taking precedence where there are discrepancies" very seriously XP
