Something Useful To Use Cow Patties For

This my dears is a cow patty with a toad stool growing out of it. Why do I have this picture? Because it just might come in handy and it did. I wonder if anyone here watches Texas Country Reporter. The show last Sunday was about two ladies who gather cow patties (very dry cow patties) and sell bags of them to the public. Whatever for, you might ask. According to them if you light a match or cigarette lighter to them and let them burn they will repel mesquitoes. Too bad we didn't think of this we have plenty of them. If I think of it I am going to take some gloves and a bag to gather some. I'll put one on a tin plate, light it up and relax on the porch with out the buzz of those little biting pest.

All I know is Louis L'amour had half his cowboys cooking and warming by warm cow patties.
Louis is NEVER wrong. LOL

Will Rogers said watch out for them fresh ones, don't kick it!

Preaching to the Choir, when talking to Ranchers, huh?

i've heard of them being burned for fuel but not as repellent. :)


What repelles them? The smell?

All strange. But the one of our local communities had a summer festival where flinging cow pies was a big contest....:)
