GULLTOPP Golden Tuft, Gold Top One of the 10 horses the aesir gods rode each day to yggdrasil, the World Tree, which grew at the center of the uni-verse. The gods came here on horseback each day to sit in judgment at the spring, or well, named urdar-brunn. Gulltopp is the only horse to be named in the poems that tell of this journey. According to snorri sturluson, Gulltopp belongs to heimdall, the god of light and guardian of the gods.
