Herne has been linked to the Celtic God Cernunnos
and of course mentioned by Shakespeare:
“Doth all the winter-time, at still midnight,
Walk round about an oak, with great ragg’d horns;
And there he blasts the tree and takes the cattle,
And makes milch-kine yield blood and shakes a chain,
In a most hideous and dreadful manner.
You have heard of such a spirit and well you know,
The superstitious idle-headed eld,
Receiv’d and did deliver to our age,
This tale of Herne for a truth.”
William Shakespeare, “The Merry Wives of Windsor”
Herne’s Owl Companion.
Herne’s Squirrel Friend.
He also has Mice and Snail Friends!
