Pixies that have dwarf bodies, stout limbs and big beards. Their eyes are of different colour and their beards and hair are made of grass. They never dress in any colours and wear white and black. The Polewiki are also field spirits that make sure people are working hard and appear at noon or at dusk. If they spot anyone sleeping, slacking off or drinking at work they will become angered and may even kill the worker. They steal the horses of those who have fallen asleep and cause travellers to lose their sense of direction and become lost. They can be appeased by two eggs, a toad, a cockerel and a crow that must be placed unseen in a ditch.
