The Puca or Pooka (Irish for goblin) is a Celtic folklore entity found primarily in Ireland, Scotland’s west coast, and Wales. It is one of the many fairy folk, and like many others, it is revered and feared by those who believe in it.
According to tradition, the Puca is a skilled shape changer who can take on a number of frightening or appealing shapes, including horse, rabbit, goat, goblin, or dog. The poca’s fur is usually always dark, no matter what shape it adopts. It is usually depicted as a sleek black horse with a flowing mane and glowing golden eyes.
