As we Frenchies were strolling around the farm yesterday, we discovered that the horse chestnut trees are dropping their nuts. Of course, we had to stop and investigate. Many people think that horse chestnuts are edible, however, this is not so. They're actually quite unpleasant tasting and kind of poisonous. Squirrels, who eat all kinds of nuts, never touch horse chestnuts. So, besides being good for chasing, that's another thing squirrels are handy for.
