Recent Events

A Feast for Crows

During her quest to find Sansa Stark, Brienne of Tarth notices a skinny boy on a piebald rounsey at Rosby. Later, the hedge knight Ser Creighton Longbough mentions seeing some farm boy on a piebald horse go by while he was on watch.[1]

Going about her business, Brienne keeps catching glimpses of the skinny boy on the piebald rounsey, including at Duskendale.[2] Near the Hollard castle, she confronts him by sneaking up and giving the old horse a whack across the rump with the flat of her longsword, causing the horse to rear and the boy to fall off. The boy turns out to be Tyrion Lannister's former squire, Podrick Payne.[2]

Pod joins Brienne on her quest to find Sansa and rides the old piebald rounsey during their travels. Ser Hyle Hunt is unimpressed with the quality of Pod's horseflesh and says so at Maidenpool.[4]

When the travelers reach the inn at the crossroads, Willow Heddle has Wat help them with their horses.[5]


That rounsey may be the most hideous horse I've ever seen. I am surprised that you're not riding it, my lady.[4]
