Gally-trot (n.Cy. Suf.) is the name of an alarmmg apparition in the shape of a dog, and of the size of a bullock. It is white, and somewhat shadowy of outline, and it gives chase to any one who runs away from it in fear. The word is derived from gaily, to frighten, scare, and may also be used as a common term for ghostly objects in general, though it sounds almost slangy, and one could fancy that in spectral
circles it might be deemed an impertinence to speak let us say of the Barghest of York as a mere gally-trot.
