 Soil "Pellets"

I noticed in my pasture small mounds of earth that had been "pelletized" (about 1/8"long). I live in GA and spread horse manure in my pasture. Are these mounds from dung beetles or some other insect? Is this nature's way of aerating or is this bad for my pasture? I may contact my county extension office if no one can help me.Thanks in advance for any information.

 Soil Pellets

How small s small? The 1/8" pellets could be earth worms excrament. The worms will surface if the soild is damp. If this is the case your pasture is in better shape than mine.

Peters, I feel stupid that I hadn't thought of earth worms. I do notice these small mounds more after a rain. I agree that worms would be a good thing for my pasture. Thanks for pointing out the obvious.
