It's hard to swallow the notion of a horse ghost that appears according to the schedule of a human calendar, and adjusts for leap year each time.

To be fair, what would a ghost use for a clock? The problem is that were something like this to be true, we have no way to gauge what does and does not make sense. Maybe "real" ghosts show up when we expect them...who knows?

STONE AGE GHOST.

I was thinking that as far as historical accounts, this might partly be a question of language. For example, might an apparition seen by people in 2000 BC be perceived as a deity, or a sign from a god, or a warning of some kind? Maybe ghostly encounters can take on many different unrecognized names throughout different cultures, and going way back in time.

Next, some of the "New Age" stuff would imply that ghosts do have a time limit - the idea being that something holds them [the spirit of the deceased] in this world, something that they are not willing to part with, but that eventually they do find their way: "Go towards the light" now being a cliché.
