He could see the filly he wanted… She was in the middle of the swirling mass of bodies… showing no signs of moving near enough for him to claim.

Théoden kept a wary eye on his fellows, on such a round-up everything was fair game. He watched a bold young man try to cut in, only to be unceremoniously shouldered aside before he could get hold of his target.

There she was… a fine chestnut, tripping by, long locks streaming over her shoulders – exactly the colour of his favourite mare… She’s the one! Théoden plunged in among the whirling dancers.
