Poop Quiz

Lily and I were walking around scouting out places for beehives and lo and behold, this is what we found.

I was so excited!  I've been thinking we needed another poop quiz.  

It was a sunny day so I took a pic of this specimen in the sun and in a shadow.  I didn't know which would give you the detail you need to make an ID.
You can blow the pics up for a closer look.

This is old poop.  I'm guessing it's been there since October.   It was big - really big.   As big as your hand with your fingers all stretched out. 

It's full of short hairy fibers.   I'm guessing grass. 

So, what do you think left it?

Whatever left this was big and probably eats mostly grass.   If you read the blog often, you might remember this story last fall.   I'm pretty sure that our specimen is related to that.

  1. I was going to say "horses" but it looked so unlike any horse manure I've ever seen. But being old, it makes more sense. Love the poop quizzes! :-)
