How does Gandalf know this stuff? [In reply to] Can't Post

Gandalf's remark makes me wonder how many "winged steeds" Sauron had, so that the Nazgul could be "soon horsed again". Nine Nazgul - thus nine flying creatures at a minimum. Soon horsed again, when the Nazgul was on a reconnaissance far from Mordor - thus nine more, so that each wraith could have a replacement nearby at need? Or is Gandalf saying soon in a more relative sense, like "in just a few weeks from now"?

18 Flying Beasts? Or more? or less? Then the question arises of the reliability and quantity of the fell meats supply, especially on long-distance flights or forward operations.
