This was a strange creature sighted in America during the 19th century by a lumberjack. As he was travelling through the forest he heard a quick and numerous galloping noise. He then got a clear sight of horse that had eight legs positioned like a spider’s legs. He got on his horse and chased after the beast but he could not keep up and lost sight of it. Many have heard it since but none have seen it again.
