The galloping hooves of Frodos dream [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd always assumed they linked to the Black Riders galloping away from their unsuccessful attack on Crickhollow. (Frodos dreams several times seem to reflect events elsewhere, as when he dreams of Gandalf captive in Orthanc). It hadn't occurred to me , until I read the links Squire posted, that it could link to the Bree ponies being driven off: Frodo might really have heard that, or his dreams are a bit magical.

Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....

"nowimė I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"
