After consulting with a warlock, police in Dorset have concluded that the mysterious plaits (braids) that have been appearing in horse's manes are part of "knot magick" rituals. As many as 12 horses have been braided.
PC Tim Poole, who has investigated the incidents, said: "We have some very good information from a warlock that this is part of a white magic ritual and is to do with knot magick."
"It would appear that for people of this belief, knot magick is used when they want to cast a spell. Some of the gods they worship have a strong connection to horses so if they have a particular request, plaiting this knot in a horse's mane lends strength to the request. This warlock said it is a benign activity, albeit maybe a bit distressing for the horse owner."
