Piskeys of Polperro and District

  
J Quiller Couch on the piskeys of Polperro and district..."when not singing and dancing, their chief nightly amusement is riding the colts, or plaiting their manes or tangling them with seed-vessels of the burdock. Of a particular field in this neighbourhood it is reported that the farmer never puts his horses in it, but he finds them in the morning in a great state of terror, panting and covered with foam."
