Gullfaxi is a horse in Norse mythology. Its name means Golden mane.
Guldfaxe is equally fast on land, in the air and on the water, but not quite as fast as Sleipnir, Odin's horse.
Gullfaxi is also the name of a horse in the modern Icelandic folk-tale The Horse Gullfaxi and the Sword Gunnfoder collected by Jón Árnason, translated into German by Josef Poestion , then rendered into English and included in the Crimson Fairy Book (1903) compiled by Andrew Lang.
