Lippy is the name of the horse that Dandelo kept along the side of his house. Lippy was very old and diseased. Her name is inspired by the Robert Browning poem, Fra Lippo Lippi.

Role in the Dark Tower Series[]

While Roland Deschain and Susannah Dean were inside Dandelo's home, Lippy escaped and wandered off into Empathica. During the storm, she came back and Roland put her out of her misery. Mordred Deschain came across Lippy's remains and consumed them. When eating what was left of Lippy, Mordred did not stop to question why the horse's dead body was still warm and full of uncoagulated blood. The remains gave Mordred food poisoning and greatly weakened him before his confrontation with Roland.
