Just stuck my wrist in a pile not more than an hour ago, luckily the goats love them and keep them down...
If they're the same or similar to horse nettles, then I second your DAMMIT! Those things suck
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.
thats what im thinking of too, ive stepped on a few before with my bare feet. boy did that hurt
I knealed down into some, felt like my knee was on fire
Ah once again, the natural wold can eat us up even with our guns and t shirts and microwave soup

My wrist is still bugging me from yesterday....
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:
Those bastards hurt too.
thanks for the pic.
use to be around horses all the time when i was younger. we don't get those here in southwest tn. never seen that before, i think i would remember it.
