The Tenth Walker  by Lindelea
Probably been done before, and perhaps better, but Bill the Pony gave my elbow a nudge this morning, causing me to spill my tea, and he licked up all the sugar from the bowl, and is likely to make a complete nuisance of himself if I don't write down his story. Chapters are about as long as a pony's attention span. New: Kindling fire on Caradhras. Or not, as it were. Legolas takes a hand.
