SLEIPNIR - this is the eight-legged horse that is the favorite horse of ODIN. It was created by LOKI and then given to ODIN as a gift. For this, it is said that LOKI had to change himself into a mare (female horse) and then give birth to the eight legged horse. SLEIPNIR is the symbol of the wind, and had the marks of hell. The horse could just as easily gallop through the air as on land.
