divining a horse's age

materials: one gold ring (ex. man's wedding band), one strand of hair from the horse, either mane or tail (preferably with root), one glass of water filled halfway.

procedure: thread the horse hair through the gold ring and hold from the top allowing the ring to rest at the bottom of the loop of hair...lower the ring into the half-filled glass and suspend about one inch above the water ... remain as still as you can ... the ring will begin to swing ... count the number of times the ring hits the side of the glass for equivalent years of age for the horse.

i have been told that witching for water, either for waterlines or well placement, is fact and not fiction around here ... witching a horse's age?  i might need to see it a few more times ...
