The 9 o’clock Horses

Grandma used to tell us, when my sister and I were kids. That if we were not in bed before 9. The horses would come and take us away. 

There is very little info about them but I believe it’s a folk tale originating from Leistershire and is related to curfew threats to child labourers in the industrial era of Britain.
