A trickster shape-shifter of north-east England. It was said to be the Ghost of a man who was killed for plundering a granary and thus kept a vast amount of treasure in a hidden cave. He would appear in the form of a donkey or replica of a farmer’s horse. He would allow his victims to ride him and then throw his reins of and gallop away or dive into a stream laughing.
