Sleipnir is a massive and powerful horse, gifted with eight legs, and famous for the battles he has fought with King Odin Borson on his back. When Odin's son, Thor, led an ill-conceived revenge attack on Jotunheim, Thor and his Asgardian friends found themselves outnumbered and surrounded by the jotuns. Odin suddenly appeared before them on the back of Sleipnir, seeking to prevent an escalation of the conflict. The frost giants rejected Odin's plea and rushed to attack, whereupon Odin retreated with Sleipnir and his people via the Bifrost Bridge, returning them home.[1]
