From the forum index page:
So we're named after a horse. However, I think a few have gotten the species mixed up a bit, thought it was a donkey, and have acted like... well, y'know.This server is named for the steed of Éomer, the Third Marshal of the Riddermark. One of Rohan’s finest horses, Firefoot bore both Éomer and Gimli to Helm’s Deep, and later led the charge against the mûmakil at the Pelennor Fields.
(smile, it's supposed to be a joke. All persons referenced in this are fictional and products of my overactive imagination. No persons, characters, or toons, real or imaginary, were directly implied in the above comments. No one was harmed in the making of these comments. Well, except for that one hobbit- but he had it coming!)
