Picktree Brag is a shapeshifting goblin who haunts Picktree hamlet in the North of England.


Brag originally meant to make a crackling noise


Like the Irish pooka, Picktree Brag indulged in appearing as a horse, enticing travellers to mount it. It also appeared as a calf, with a white handkerchief around its neck; as an ass; as a naked man without a head; and as four men holding up a white sheet.


Picktree Brag would naturally leap off on a wild chase, before depositing the poor people in duck-ponds along the way.
