A Kelpie is a shape-shifting water-horse that is part of Scottish folklore.  Most large bodies of water in Scotland have an associated Kelpie tale to go with it - the most common is the Loch Ness. The Kelpie can take the form of a horse or a human. This causes Kelpie tales to have very cautionary messages about appearance. Kelpie stories were also used to warn children of the dangers of the water. Additionally, Kelpie stories were also used to warn young women to be cautious of good-looking men - the Kelpie's most common human form.

Look at the cute doggo! This right here is an Australian Kelpie!  The Australian Kelpie is a great herding dog and they are used to herd livestock in Australia, Canada, the United States and  many other parts of the world. It is said that they are a cross breed between a collie, other herding dogs and possibly dingos. They are extremely intelligent and have high energy so they work best with a task at hand.
