Sleipnir, The Eight Legged Horse of Odin

Products available at: www.cafepress.com/agnesolson . Well, first off, I have to say that this is my first time drawing a horse ... and this one has EIGHT legs! It took me a long time and was not as easy as I first thought! Anyways, I'd like some comments on his anatomy ... so please let me know what I need to correct. In Norse mythology, Sleipnir is Odin's magical eight-legged horse. His name means smooth or gliding and he's the best/fastest horse in all of the heavens and earth. Loki, in the guise of a mare, gave birth to Sleipnir by Svadilfari. I first sketched him out and did the rest with a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
