The fringe ogam on this style of a flying horse reads closely to Old Norse Nefni Sleipnir = "itsname is Sleipnir."  The reference is to the magic steed Sleipnir, obtained by Loki for Woden.  This is a good example of the persistence of an artistic and mythological tradition, for the carving is in a nonresistant rock in the Milk River Valley, Alberta, Canada, and must have been completed within recent centuries (Fell 1982).
