The Aughisky Fairy Horse of Ireland-

The Aughisky Faiy Horse of Ireland-
In Scottish Gaelic, water horse is a mythological Scottish water
spirit, called the eachuisce or The Aughisky Fairy Horese in Ireland. It is very

similar to the Kelpie of,but far more vicious. These are the water horses 
of Ireland and are similare to the Uisge and the Cabyll-Ushtey. These Aughisky Fairy 
horses gallop out of the crashing waves onto the shore, venturing onto inland.  They
are supposed to make excellent mounts of whoever can catch one although for an ride, but
riding on the Aughisksy Fairy Horse is not without risk. If they hear or see the sea they will
 set off in an uncontrollable charge or gallop straight back into the watery depths where they 
came from, taking their helpless rider with them to be torn apart once they have gotten to

the bottom of the sea. Eyewitnesses have described the animal as a Water Horse which is capable of assuming the characteristics of a man, save for its ears, which retain their horse-like appearance. According to legend the Aughisky pastime was to pretend to be grazing quietly at night in order to lure unsuspecting humans onto its back by appearing to be a docile horse. Once the trusting individual was firmly situated on the creature’s spine it would suddenly bolt

into the sea.   It has also been claimed that the skin of the Aughisky has adhesive properties, which would explain why its victims aren’t able to leap to safety before plummeting into their watery graves.
  
Generally once they have gone to the depths of the ocean, the Aughisky Fairy
horses will drown and eat its rider. Under water although it refuses to eat human livers, it will consume
the rest of the human.It seems to have developed a dislike for the human liver, so they eat everything but the liver and toss it in the depth of the sea for other sea creatures. It kills by constriction and can change its shape to a handsome man or a giant bird. It leaves a slimy trail when moving on  land. It has even been suggested that the Aughisky Fairy horse maybe
called the 'Irish-crocodile', which is more commonly referred to as the Dobhar Chu.

There have been even Eyewitnesses that have described the Aughisky Horse Fairy as an 
Water Horse which is capable of assuming the characteristics of a man, but he still retains his
horse-like appearance. According to the legend of the Aughisky Fairy his pastime was in
ancient times and maybe even in some area's of Ireland to lure unsuspecting humans onto
its back by appearing to be a docile horse.
Once the trusting individual was firmly situated on the creatures spine it would blot for the nearest 
body of water, usually the sea but sometimes a lake or riverbed will do. Then the human would be plumbed to their rather gruesome grave compare to the kelpie.  


 Irish Folk-Lore by G. H. Kinahan, Record 4, 1881
There are fairies like a horse that inhabit certain lakes, yet most people are afraid to pass a place they frequent after it is dark. If a person gets between them and the water, and can steal up and put a halter on

them, they can be subdued and used as long as they are not allowed to see lake,riverbank or sea, but once they are allowed to see it, all power over the Aughisky Fairy is lost. There are many of  stories of Ireland that tell of the Aughisky Fairy  and their riders dashing into the water and never to be seen again.

An Aughisky Fairy is said to a few years ago frequent Lough Mask, County of Mayo, preying on the cattle until it was laid by a monk of Tourmkedy. Another that lived in Lough Corrib had a serpent's body and a horse's head; this used to feed on the bodies buried in the churchyard to the south-east of Oughterard, but one of the Lees whose sister was buried watch her body and killed the monster, its blood staining the church wall to his day; the holes through which this Aughisky Fairy horse

came up can be seen alone it track through the Lemonfield Bog. There is a bit more to the tale; A Aughisky Fairy horse that lived in Litter-craffoe Lake was captured by a boy of the Cooney's who was told by a wise woman if he ever let it see the water it would be the death of him. For years it was a faithful horse, but one day he brought it in sight of the lake, into which it shot like a arrow, carrying its owner and once friend with it, whom it killed and tore his master to pieces, devouring him as blood and fragments of his body floated upon the surface of the water. 

So as the tale is so true. Even after years of companionship these creatures can turn into
vicious creatures much more than the Kelpies of Scotland. So you much take care with the Aughisky Fairy Horse of Ireland.These Aughisky Fairy horses are about 21 feet in length and as thick as a bull. It has a

horse like head and it's neck with an mane of hair. It has sometimes been described as 'Serpentine' in shape.  It's behaviour is most frequently in the month of November - Samhain. It grazes with normal horses. If someone tries to ride these dangerous creatures, it will gallop off to the nearest body of water as if the moment the human body touches his spine, something in the creature goes off. and turns him into a demon. As they gallop with speeds that now real horse could every do into any body of water where it will drown it human rider. Than devourer it by tearing the body apart. Eating everything but the liver. It can change shapeshift into a handsome man or a gaint bird.

One trail that the crature leaves is a slimy trail on land when moving about.
I did find out one interesting fact about this creature which it seems that when the Aughiskey Fairy horse is in his human form it is said to appear to be quite a handsome man and can be recongnised as a mythological creature only by the water weeds in its hair, because of his people of the Highlands were often wary of lone animals and strangers aby the waters edge near where the each-uisge was reputed to live.
