Loki's Family Tree 12 11, 9:01pm

Sleipnir most likely got his eight legs after Loki. Loki is thought to have been the spider god in older germanic paganism (Odin is probably a merge of the horse, raven and wolf). Also, "Loke" (or other variations) can literally mean spider in various scandinavian dialects. In faroese for example "lokkanet" means 'spiderweb'.
