LYING HORSE ROCK
“There's a place in Winn Parish called Coochie Brake. It was a
hideout for the West-Kimbrell Clan.
There is a rock there called Lying Horse Rock that's shaped like
a horse lying on its side.
Apparently, Lying Horse Rock is voodooed, whereas anyone
who goes near it, something bad happens to them.
We've had some to say that old so-and-so died because he got
too close to Lying Horse Rock. I don't put much faith in all that
superstition, but apparently it was voodooed or
had a hex put on it.”
