A house-hold spirit from the myths of Russia. He lives in the shed and stables of a particular chosen family. They look after the welfare of the farm animals. They welcome any new animals to the farm. However he has an uncanny hatred for any animals that where white in colour except for chickens. Sometimes the Dvorovoi are mischievous are whip animals and cause damages. The Dvorovoi are punished for this by the farmer. When they work hard they are greatly rewarded.
