Hag Stone

hag stone In folk magic, a stone with a hole in it hung in homes and stables to keep away hAgs or witches, at night. Hung on the bedpost, a hag stone is believed to prevent a hag from riding one’s chest and causing a Nightmare. In the stables, it prevents a hag from taking the horses and riding them all night to the point of exhaustion. See also : stones.
