Porridge is an original character from the Land of Stories series. She is Goldilocks' horse. Her name is probably derived from the classic fairy tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, in which Goldilocks eats from the bears' porridge. Porridge first appears in The Wishing Spell, ch 6.

Appearance and Personality

"A cream-coloured horse slowly traveled into the clearing. It picked up its hooves in a particular manner, as if it had been trained to tiptoe." [TLOS I, ch 6, p. 119]

Porridge is female, she can defend herself in battle, and is said to be "the fastest horse in all the kingdoms".[1]

She is the one who goes to find Jack after Goldilocks has been captured by the Evil Queen, and leads him, Froggy and the Northern Kingdom army to her.[2]

In The Enchantress Returns, it is implied that she has a "complicated history" with a horse from Queen Red Riding Hood's stables, Buckle,[3] and it is revealed at the end of the book that she is pregnant, with Buckle as a likely father.[4]

In A Grimm Warning, Porridge attends Goldilock's wedding as her maid of honor with her foal Oats.[5]

In Beyond the Kingdoms, Porridge, Buckle and Oats transport the friends to the Masked Man's cave.[6] Red Riding Hood and the Lost Boys also ride them to Morina to search for Froggy.[7]
