Mythology: Sleipneir Picture
Odin's mighty steed. Sleipneir was something of an accident brought about by one of Loki and Thor's misadventures that required Loki to lure a giant's stallion away by shape-shifting into the form of a white mare. About a year later, Loki came back to Asgard, leading behind him a gray-furred colt with eight legs! He gave the horse to Odin as a gift, and the king of the gods loved him as though he were his own son. When he grew into an adult, Sleipneir's eight legs allowed him to outrun the wind and traverse the Nine Realms in an instant.
