Warning: don't mess with fairy women, and don't mess with fairy cows!

In this cautionary Welsh folk tale, a greedy farmer finds out the hard way that you shouldn't look a gift horse - or, in this case, a gift cow - in the mouth.

When the dark waters of Llyn Barfog provide him with a cash cow he can't believe his luck. But when madness takes over, and darkness descends...

To discover all the secrets, join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he explores this fascinating old folk-horror fairy tale on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.

And remember - don't mess with fairy women or fairy cows!
