The Shoopiltie is a pony version of the Each Uisge from the Shetland Islands. Can take the form of a young man with the ears of a horse. Each Uisge is a malevolent Water Horse that takes the false appearance of a handsome reliable steed and offers itself to be ridden. However when someone attempts to mount the horse, it runs off and carries its rider to the bottom of a lake of which it lives and devours its victim. The Scottish version can morph into a handsome man and beautiful bird. It is believed that if someone successfully subdues this beast by mounting it they will have a super powered, strong and reliable horse so long as the horse does not see water. It is similar to Kelpie except that the Each Uisge lives in still waters.
