Yellow crystals on poo

This pile belongs to one of the 2 mares my gelding is pasture mates with. They are new. I did not see who it came out of but spotted it on my way to get my horse. It looks like yellow crystals with black spots growing in the cracks of the poo. I know one of the mares has a history of foundering, is this something to be concerned about or does anyone know what it is?

That looks like a fungus growing on the poop.

Mold/fungus. It happens this time of year. Can be all sorts of colors and shapes:)

Yup, it's all over my horses' pasture poop too. It tends to grow on poop that is left out for a few days (I muck out my paddock and part of the pasture, but not the back area which is where I'm seeing it). If it's any consolation, the poop itself looks well-formed! :)
