[edit] Companion and orcs

I tried to find the reference of the orc-assault in Anorien where he lost his companion and he escaped. I skimmed the chapter but didn't find one. I find it strange because the Orcs entered Anorien only after March 10. Sage 12:22, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Neither found I. I suppose there was no such assault. But what about the three horsemen seen by Gandalf and Pippin (in the beginning of the chapter "Minas Tirith"):
But Shadowfax paused in his stride, slowing to a walk, and then he lifted up his head and neighed. And out of the darkness the answering neigh of other horses came; and presently the thudding of hoofs was heard, and three riders swept up and passed like flying ghosts in the moon and vanished into the West.
Should we think these horsemen were Hirgon and his companions? --Tik 14:48, 27 December 2018 (UTC)
