Wow, that was really cool and educational. My favorite new phrase for something all horse owners will recognize: "Zone of repugnance." :lol:

That was geekfully great! Thanks!

(At first I hoped it was going to be about the wee flies that seem to appear out of nowhere on fresh manure piles - they have to be pretty fast?!)

I wonder if they really know that the horse manure fungus is really faster than fungus that lives on cow flops or mountain lion poop, etc.
Hmmm.... maybe I need a federal grant to investigate all poop for supersonic fungus!!!:winkgrin:

Thanks! Now I'm wondering what other purpose it serves other than to reproduce itself.
