    if they're the same as what they call "goat's heads" here I feel for ya. they're murder on bike, wheelbarrow, dolly etc tires and the first one I pulled out the hole in my thumb didn't heal for weeks.

    The things I'm thinking of don't puncture your skin. They're plants that, when you touch them, feel like thousands of tiny acid needle pricks that itch and burn like hell.

    Definitely different than the goatsheads I was talking about but I have had run-ins with these bull nettles. Usually when hiking on trails that have frequent horses. (horses eat hay, crap seeds, grow nettles)


    Here's what I was talking about:
