Went to give the horse a carrot and found these in his poop pile.

    Hi folks!

    I don't have much to do with the wife's horse as every time I go and see him he bullies me for carrots and he's bigger than me and always wins.

    But these were in his poop hill.

    UK, in the Shire (Gloucester). No trees in his paddock. And they weren't there yesterday according to the horse.

    I'm just curious. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Also, I've just realised I have access to loads of poop too that I could put to use. :bdh:

    :borat:

    PS - I'll get the wife to get some pics in the morning if they're still there, they may be open more then.

    Ok I hope it was ok to use one of your pics to I’d your mystery mushroom. It is called a Shiny mottlegill or also known as Egghead mottlegill Scientific name: Panaeolus semiovatus May cause hallucinations especially visual

    Your identification is spot on, however this is an edible species that is completely devoid of hallucinogenic drugs.
