Horshawn

A myth submitted to the site by Jasmine

Unknown, Southern Europe

The Horshawn is a creature from thousands of years ago. It looks like a horse during the day, and pretends to be a loving and friendly horse. They will usually be dark brown or chestnut. However, at exactly ten o'clock at night, their skin and hair will go black, so as not to be seen, and their eyes will turn bright yellow. At midnight, their eyes become a glowing red. They will escape from their stables. They are mainly found in Southern Europe, New Zealand, Greenland, and Western Australia.

Their plan:
Their plan is to capture it's pray and knock it out. They will feed on humans and coyotes. For humans, they will creep in to your house at midnight and, while you are still asleep in your bed, they will knock you out by bumping your head with their nozzle. Then, they will drag you out into the bush and kill you with their hooves, by stamping in you. This is the same with the coyote, except that the Horshawn just grabs them from the bush.

Their weakness:
The Horshawn's only weakness is light. If ever they are in their monstrous selves in daylight hours, they will be burnt to ashes. However, they are not visible to the HUMAN eye in daylight hours. Only animals can see them during both day and night.
