A horse whose body is covered in seaweed. Its name is Danish for seaweed but it haunts the Shetland Islands of Scotland. The Tangie has the ability to turn into an old man. Similar to the Kelpie the horse entices riders to mount upon its back from which point it would jump into the deepest waters and drown the rider. The thief, Black Eric was known to have captured and successfully ride a Tangie as his mount. This gave him supernatural powers. In the end, Black Eric was flung off from the horse off a cliff and drowned in the waters below. The Tangie went on to continue to haunt the people of the Shetland Islands.
