An ominous creature described by the 13th century writer, Gervaise of Tilbury. The creature had the form of a yearling colt and walked on its hind legs. It had fiery eyes and where it went, it would send dogs barking and chasing after it. When the Grant appeared at sunset or during the height of the heat during the day, it would be an omen of an imminent house fire nearby.
