In Norse mythology, huge bronze chariot of Thor was dragged across the sky by two goats, with names - Tangniostr (-Scandinavian. Tanngnjóstr, "gritting his teeth") and Tangrisnir (-Scandinavian. Tanngrisnir, «popping his teeth»). If Thor was hungry, he could fry his goats and eat them. To continue his way, all he had to do - is to bless the remains of goats with his hammer , and they immediately raised, but only if their bones were not touched. When Thor stayed for the night at Tialfi and his sister Resckva, they have violated the prohibition and with the meat began to gnaw the bones, after that one of the goats became limp. In the form of ransom Tialfi and Resckva have become the servants of Thor.
