CHLEVNIK

Slavic Cow Spirit πŸ„

Also known as Chlevnic

Tricky Cattle Spirit of the Cowshed

He is a Dvorovoi of the farmyard. And he is a bit of a pest.

He’s very fussy about which cow goes where in the stalls, what kind of cow you should like best, who gets milked first and... Wait β€” where is his share of the milk?

It’s sometimes possible to drive him away with old-fashioned shouting and banging milk churns together.
