From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:
That nothing Serious may ever Happen to Cattle during the Entire Year.
During Good Friday night between the hours of eleven and twelve, you must rub every animal, cattle or horse, etc., over the back, and stroke with your right hand in the three highest names, three times, and speak; This I do unto thee for boils and tumors, wild blood, griping pains and colic, and for all ailments and injuries, and for all bad people who by night will plague thee. + + + Then you must cut a cross on the tail of the cattle, and also make a little incision on both points of the ears, thus nothing serious will happen during the entire year.
Take bay leaves five cents, for five cents arrow root, engian, linden tree fungus, larch tree fungus, pepper, asafetida, one load of gunpowder and a nutmeg, all dissolved in one quart of wine, to be taken as hot as possible.
