This is horse sh*t

Yes folks, it really is!

And the point is that I have always wondered what the yellow/brown flies are that are attracted to these piles of dung. Well, they are Scathophaga stercoraria, known as the Common Yellow Dung Fly . So now you know. They feed on small insects on the dung and lay their eggs within.
