But he did also create the horse, depending on which story either in an attempt to woo Demeter or to impress the humans in Cecropia. Neither attempt worked but it shows he ''could'' create things other than monsters when he wanted to.

*** This could be a case of ValuesDissonance. In ancient Greece, it was quite common for the ruler of a house (in this case, Zeus) to give away his daughter to someone he felt was worthy of her (Hephaestus could forge a lot of kick-ass weapons for all the gods, so it makes sense why Zeus would want him on his side). Zeus could very well have just been trying to make up for Hera's decision to ditch Hephaestus.
