    Hello Max and MissInformed

    Such hoofprints have been associated with Spring-Heeled Jack. Maybe Mr Slemen was talking about Spring-Heeled Jack when he mentioned hoofprints in Liverpool? A site on the topic of Spring-Heeled Jack mentions such prints seen in Devon in February 1855:

    "The hoof like prints were attributed by some to have been made by the devil himself while others thought it was the work of Spring Heeled Jack."

    ''I visited Rice Lane farm one weekend last summer, there were goats, sheep, ponies and cows etc, everything you'd expect to see at a farm really, you should have seen the hoove footprints''

    You'd better watch out for MissInformed's hoof.
