The devil's claw that is and I totally agree with the name. I do NOT like these things. We have been pulling them out of a portion of our pasture. How they got there who knows. They are evil yes evil....they bring blood. I had a glove on but I should have worn leather ones. I looked up the silly things and wouldn't you know it they make it into medicine, use it for flower arranging and making baskets.
Let me just say they are a nightmare for livestock and deer. They catch around their hooves and dig in.
By the time we were done we had a truckload.
Wouldn't you know it they sell on ebay at about $1.00 each....We probably have a fortune in those EVIL things. Yes after being snagged about 4 times I think they are destined to doom.
On a much brighter note....had these two busy kiddos yesterday for awhile. Sloan just thinks his lil' cousin is top~notch. He can hardly wait for her to start crawling and talking to him.
This weekend we will begin laying down the tile on the floor. It's going to be a big job but we have some family that has volunteered to help and boy am I thankful for that.
They say rains are on the way....could it mean the dog days of summer are almost over...we can only hope!
