    The pucca are from Irish mythos. They are part of the unseelie. Carnivorous horses that entice people to ride them so they can drown and eat them.

    I'm trying to find a link for you.

    Oh so that's what it is... I was thinking about a Spanish curse. It's funny how something in one language can mean something else in another language...

    What you're probably looking for is this: http://puccaclub.com/eng/



    On the first subject:
    With pucca/pooka's the most common ones are the horses but they can turn themselves into any animal.

    http://www.sidhenadaire.com/glossary.html
    Pucá (Pooka): in Irish Celtic mythology, a fey creature that leads travelers astray and performed other mischievous deeds. By some accounts it appears in the likeness of a fierce black steed that will pull the unwary onto his back run away with them through river and fen, not shaking them off until the grey of dawn.
    http://www.traditionsmagazine.com/fe...aterhorse.html
    As a shape-shifter, the phooka is able to take on a variety of animal forms including that of a goat, a horse, an ass, a bull, and an eagle. In Co. Waterford and Co. Wexford, for example, the phooka appears as an eagle with a huge wingspan.
    ...
    The phooka, or aughisky, is said to also take the shape of a horse. It is said the if a person is able to bridle one of the aughisky and keep them away from the water that they make a most wonderful steed. However, should the fairy horse see but a single glimpse of the water, he would run at full speed toward the water plunging the rider into its depths and devouring him. The bridles used are said in some instances to belong to the phooka, but that seems doubtful. Some stories refer to the use of three of the hairs from a phooka to be used in the making of the bridle and that the power would be granted to person to capture the creature – but the ongoing conflict to gentle the creature would still be quite voracious.

    The phooka is also said to induce children to mount him, and then to plunge with the children over a precipice killing them. The Scottish kelpie is also attributed with similar feats.

    Some bits of folklore states that the phooka is only visible to the person to whom it attaches itself. The phooka is also said to take the form of the bogeyman and frighten children. This folk belief is still commonly held in Co. Laois.
    ...
    Modern story telling has used the name pucca, pooka, etc. for any animal/humanistic shapechanger or animorf.
