is a horse in Norse mythology
. Its name means Golden mane
It was originally owned by Hrungnir, and was later given to Magni by Thor as a reward for helping him in the fight against Hrungnir:
- 'And I will give thee,' he said, the horse Gold-Mane, which Hrungnir possessed.'
- Then Odin spake and said that Thor did wrong to give the good horse to the son of a giantess, and not to his father.
- —Skáldskaparmál (17),
Guldfaxe is equally fast on land, in the air and on the water, but not quite as fast as Sleipnir
, Odin's horse.
