Gullfaxi

Gullfaxi

Gullfaxi 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.
