No, I Don't Think So.

Warlock? A warlock? Is this 1966? The High Priest of British White Witches? Please.

Officers in Dorset have been contacted by a warlock, or male witch, who claimed the plaits are used in rituals by followers of “knot magick”, also known as “cord magick”.

But Kevin Carlyon, the Hastings-based self-proclaimed High Priest of British White Witches, told The Argus some plaits or knots could be evidence of devil-worship or black magic.

He said mostly the practice by “white witches” is harmless and intended for the witch to benefit from the horse’s natural power or as a gift or tribute if they see horses as sacred animals.

Mr Carlyon said plaiting has also been known to precede ritual mutilation of horses in black magic.

Give me a fucking break.

This guy is such an embarrassment to Pagans and Witches in the UK... arrgh... at least the article said 'self-proclaimed' King of the Witches. Sigh.
