    I actually don't know all that much about it
    But the horse is Sleipnir and has Óšinn (Odinn) on it's back.
    I just googled Sleipnir earlier.

    - - -

    But maybe none of you are familiar with the Norse Mythology ?
    If so then here's a short description of those two formerly mentioned
    Óšinn: Sometimes called The alfather. He was the first of the so called Ęsir (Aesir, the gods) with his brothers, Vilji and Véi (I'm pretty sure they were called that)
    He created the universe out of a žurs (Thurs, the evil guys), has two ravens Huginn and Muninn that go around the world and bring him news to his high seat, Hlišskjįlf, from where he can see everything. He gave up one of his eyes for a drink from the well of wisdom. He is the father of many other Ęsir. He has many, MANY other names (my former team I used to practise with was e.g. Named after him, but a lesser known name)
    Sleipnir: His parents are the stallion Svašilfari, which is extremely strong, and the trickster ęsir Loki (many are confused by this seeing as Loki is a male). Loki was in the shape of a mare (a part of another story) and galloped off with Svašilfari, bringing Sleipnir the next day. Sleipnir is the fastest of all horses because he has eight legs. Loki gave Sleipnir to Óšinn.
    There is this place here on Iceland called Įsbyrgi, and in it is the hoofprint of Sleipnir

    Sleipnir's hoofprint in Įsbyrgi

    Sorry for the slight novel I just looooove the Norse Mythology! I did all this without any help from websites, and this is really just scratching the surface !

    did I just brake the record for longest post in The thread of million replies

    Eta: Hey, Huginn and Muninn are in my avatar ! I just noticed that !

    Sissi that is a nice story about your history.

    I have read about the eight legged horse before in some
    Of the creation legends. I love the picture. Very pretty
    In your country.

    I think his sheild has the design or represents the directions
    Of the 4 winds. I think that is what I remember.

    It is cold and snowflurries here too.
    I had some teeth pulled yesterday afternoon
    And the pain pills put me to sleep so I missed pretty
    Much of what went on today.

    Great story, Sis

    We got snow just like forecasted. I think it's much better than rain.

    Morning all,

    Wow what a great story Sissi, I love history though sometimes mythology is quite interesting too.

    I love that photo too, it seems like some big giant put a step on the earth, and then mankind made homes in it. Look at the surrounding of the area, looks like a footprint. Amazing photo, Amazing place. A place where I'd like to go to .

    It was so cold last night, specially at the start of my horse riding lesson. My hands were jammed with horses reins. I couldn't even feel them. Anyhow, it was a great lesson.

    So how is everyone doing today?

    Regards
