Sleipnir, the eight-legged horse, is one of the norse god Loki’s children. After making designs of carousel horses, I couldn’t possibly not do this one. Let’s face it, everyone needs a horse with a strange number of legs.

Sleipnir has 8 legs for three possible reasons:
-Odin, his rider, has an association with the doubling (or halving) of things (he has 2 genders, one eye, etc), so his horse has twice as many legs.
-The 8 legs refer to the 4 cardinal directions and 4 cross-quarter directions.
-Sleipnir is a gallows. Odin is Lord of the Gallows and has been understood to ride a gallows, which stands on 8 posts, between worlds.
