    I got a new toy!

    Why?
    Because I've found so many nails & screws the last week that it's nuts!

    Found 13! Plus 1 by sight & a few odd bits of metals.

    You're going to be a millionaire when you find that hidden treasure box! :celebrate
    I found a box in the woods a few years ago and it was full of coins from Spain! I still have them, they're pretty neat.

    I'm just trying to get all the nails out before one severely injures or kills one of my ponies.
    Around the barn is difficult, since there's TONS of rusted out bits of odd metal that isn't really a threat to anything.

    This thing has recently appeared, thanks to the ewes laying there.

    Not sure how large it is & I kinda don't want to pull it out.

    Found all this the 2nd time.
    3rd, I didn't have a bin to store it all in, will go back to collect later. It's so hot out...
    Teeth were on the surface.
    Tag belongs to my dog, he lost it a few yrs ago.
