The Pooka Picture
After nightfall the fairy creature known as Pooka may just stop by your house and call out your name. He will invite you to go with him for a ride.

He has been known to leave his victims dazed and stranded. Most often he is trodding around as a yellow eyed, sleek black horse, Other times he is a goat or a small deformed goblin. The Pooka originates in Ireland.
