Discovery NotesPhage found the at a horse farm in Buckingham (about 20 mi NE of Ft. Myers). The sample was taken from the base of the collective pile of horse manure. The pile consisted of manure from 6 horses. At least one of them, a 4 yr old filly, was sick (most likely with pneumonia). There was also a 20 yr old horse and an old mule, along with a few others. The particular sample was mostly dry, but not entirely. I specify because the sick filly's poo was very liquid-y and the horses that were healthy had dry poo. I am unsure as to whether the sample came from the sick filly or a healthy horse. I took the sample from the bottom of the large pile, so since it was slightly wet, it make have been a couple of days old, from the sick horse.
Naming NotesThe name came from a character in a game that i play daily.
