Topsy is a two-year old roan of Roland Deschain. He rides him into the village of Eluria.

The horse is terribly ill, constantly sneezing during the beginning of the book. Roland leads him further into the village where he dies shortly afterwards. His death alerts Roland to the presence of Slow Mutants which were trying to sneak up on them.

It is presumed that the Slow Mutants take the horse's corpse to eat.
