Slightly less so when you think that they breed in dung!

Dung, bless 'em. We've got the good stuff here. Sheep mainly, and for a few weeks a pony. The dark pony didn't like the white sheep and separated them out from the black, about 10 of each, keeping the white ones distant, but all were reconciled when in cold weather all 20 crowded round it in the shelter like some egregious leg-warmer.
I guess the noon fly is using mainly sheep dung then.
