Harvested some poo from a buffalo ranch- noticed mycellium in my trash bag after a week or so , and then baby pins- and then these! Kinda cool how most of them are shaped like buffalo horns. Any idea what they are??

Looks like a coprophilic Xylaria.   One possible name is Xylaria coprophila, described from Nova Scotia on porcupine dung.
