These female water sprites have the faces and torsos of beautiful
and seductive women and the hairy horses and cloven hooves of goats,
which they hide beneath their long, green, embroidered gowns and
cloaks. The glaistig lures a man to dance with her by a highland
loch before feeding on his blood. However, she has a kinder side and
loves music, as well as sometimes helping children, old women or
cattle tending farmers.
