and better-off animal.

Bill the Pony was as much a member of the Fellowship
any other up to Moria. On Bill's lone journey away from Moria, he was
under a spell of protection placed on him by Gandalf. Bill rejoined his
Sam when the hobbits and Gandalf came
back home through Bree, where the pony had taken himself back to
Butterbur's stables at the Prancing Pony Inn.
