I'm not sure if what I have is a ghost or something else, and I'm hoping someone can maybe help identify and offer suggestions!
I keep my horses in a small field a hundred yards from my home, and at least every couple of months I end up legging it out of the door having seen either someone in the paddocks or (in the dark) a light moving fast across the fence line. First thought is obviously intruder but there's never anyone there..
To get to the field you cross over a semi wooded area (newly planted 20 years ago), and every evening we walk the dog there.. Some nights he refuses to go anywhere near, sometimes staring at something we cant see, sometimes even growling slightly. My mate has always hated it, brandong it "creepy" long before he knew anything of the happenings. Even the horses at times have played up something rotten, and thats during the broad daylight.
One evening my dad saw a figure- male he thought from the build- in what looked like a hoody legging it up the back towards the field, he naturally gave chase assuming intruder but there was (as usual) nothing to chase.
This evening, dad raised the alarm that hed seen a light moving fast (striding pace) along the fence line, right to left, so we grabbed torches and sticks, and legged it out to find nothing but two suprised equines. We started the usual fence check when my mate, who is staying with us, spotted a light flash twice a full field away back over to the right. As usual there was no one present.
The land as it is now has been split from being one large field in victorian times to a few smaller fields, and our own field and that of the wooded bit before have been shaped by building works dumping spoil some 10 years previously. The area doesn't resemble what it did a century ago, yet this thing
is following the modern lie of the land.
We live out in the countryside in a little village, and to my knowledge theres nothing worth writing home about occured on the land.
So, in conclusion, what does it sound like to anyone else? Intelligent ghost? Something else?
Is there anything i can do about it so i don't end up legging it out at midnight in my PJs?
Is there possibly someone on the forum here who can tune in and identify the Whatever-It-Is?
I'm not afraid of the Whatever-It-Is, (at best I've occasionally felt like I'm being watched)should I be?
Thanks in advance
