In Memory of Shadowfax

GandalfAndShadowfaxWe’ve just heard the sad news that Blanco, the beautiful horse that played Shadowfax in the Lord of the Rings films, has died. We knew that he’d been ill and that his owner and friend, Cynthia Royal, was desperately trying to save him, sadly the decision was made to end his suffering.  Cynthia announced this to his fans and followers in an open letter on their website.  Our condolences and love go out to Cynthia and all her family.  RIP Blanco, running free in the Undying Lands.

Equi-Dance will showcase ‘Lord of Rings’ horse

SCOTTSDALE – Blanco is 20, but he’s well into his senior years. The Andalusian horse, best known for his role as Shadowfax, Gandalf’s legendary white horse in The Lord of the Rings, will perform at Equi-Dance on Friday and Saturday in Scottsdale. The show is part of the Arizona Festival of Horses 2008 at WestWorld, a weekend horse festival that includes seminars, shopping and entertainment. Cynthia Royal, who will be performing with Blanco, said Equi-Dance would be his last tour. “This will be his last performance on tour before we go to Las Vegas, where we will have a permanently based show,” Royal said. “It is not the performing that bothers him; it is really the long hours on the road.” In the two-hour show, Blanco will perform twice. His first appearance will be as Pegasus. Equi-Dance will showcase ‘Lord of Rings’ horse
