“That is Shadowfax. He is the chief of the Mearas, lords of horses, and not even Theoden, King of Rohan, has ever looked on a better. Does he not shine like silver, and run as smoothly as a swift stream? He has come for me: the horse of the White Rider. We are going to battle together.” Even as the old wizard spoke, the great horse came striding up the slope towards them; his coat was glistening and his mane flowing in the wind of his speed.

The excerpt is from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Two Towers, and when I was young I would dream about Shadowfax! Here's one attempt to show the horse that bore Gandolf into war. It's cover ready if the minimal background suffices.
