    ... Sometimes they felt the need to stroke the horse. As soon as their hands touched the kelpies skin, it would stick. The kelpy would run into the lake to drown the human, and the. They would eat them. Whoof! That was a lot of storytelling! I am ready for bed now! Goodnight! -Briana Scotland is just stunning.
