My story is similar to the other one but it is pretty different than that one. When I first noticed The black cowboy I was laying bed at age 7 and my blanket kept moving, so I screamed for my mom and she told next time that happens to tell it to leave me alone, so I did. That night after I screamed "LEAVE ME ALONE!" my mom decided to cedar the house to try and get rid of it. It worked for about 3 months,
Then it came back.
When it came back I was playing with my 4 year old brother and it walked out of my room and into my moms room, then it came down the hall and stopped in front of the fireplace. It looked at the chimney for about 2 minutes then it disappeared. This still continues to happen it has been going on for 7 years now and my mom thinks it is a protector.
Exactly 4 years after we started seeing this ghost my grandpa dies and 4 years after that my grandma died. My mom and I can sometimes hear my grandpa's voice saying her name, it is really freaky. And the black cowboy doesn't do anything but walk up and down the hall to the stove then disappear. Sometimes at night my room gets really cold and it feels like I am being watched, this ghost follows me to school and hides in the attic at school. I know this because when me and my friends were in the bathroom talking we heard something in the attic so they lifted me onto my tallest friends shoulder to see if I could open the attic and when I touched the attic door it was VERY cold and I got thrown into the wall. We all screamed and ran out of the bathroom and we no longer hang out in there. Comments on what it might be will help lots.
