Ok, now there is this horse fam up the street from me, and the horses are grain/wheat fed, there are these tiny mushrooms growing growing all over the shit of these horses, when i move the shit around (WITH A GLOVE) there are a ton more, the mushrooms have a brownish cap to them and have a light brown stalk to them, when there all dried up the caps are grey with black gills and bright white stalks, now should i eat them or not??? any comments would be MUCH Appreciated!!!!!
Well first off you did not tell us what part of the country you live in.
Second, I suspect that you have found a rare mushroom because no mushrooms which have black gills and brown stalks dry out to a white stalk. The black spored mushrooms are Coprinus, Annelaria, Panaeolus and Copelandia. All of these species grow in manure/
The Coprinus do have a whitish stalk but they are known as inky caps and get all inky. Drying them out is practically impossible
And a mushroom as you describe with brown stalks would not dry out to a white stalk. And it is extremely rare to fine any magic mushrooms in horse manure.
On the other hand if the manure is made into compost mixed with straw or hay or alfalfa then you would get Panaeolus subbalteatus which has a reddish brown stalk with virtical grooves running down a holloed stem and the caps with bands of colors on them and sometimes the caps fade to a whitish pallid color.
But a black gilled mushroom would not have a bright white stalk unless it was a Coprinus which is not psychoactive. Coprinus comatus is an edible shroom known as a shaggy Mane.
Get a camera and photograph you r mushrooms and then post them. You can purchased cheap 35 mm cameras for under 50 dollars.
Have a shroomy day.
Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.
well, the manure is made of shit, and straw, wood chips as well, the fresh mushrooms are brown at the top and like u said kinda reddish and brown at thre stalk, when they are dried up they are kinda grey, with black gills and a white stalk, oh yea and i live in Pa... if u want i can scan a pic of them..
