Blanco the horse who played Shadowfax in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy died last week. According to TMZ, Blanco was rushed to a horse hospital after a sudden illness by owner Cynthia Royal.

“The veterinarian asked Cynthia if she wanted to put the horse to sleep … so she asked Shadowfax for approval — and the owner says the horse gave her a look that meant yes.

Cynthia gave vets the OK — and they put him down.”

The video is a heartfelt tribute to the magnificent horse:
