And in one breathe OP you are saying, you couldn't clear it out because of the weather - but then in the other breathe you are saying you only clear out twice a year with the use of equipment. So when the ground is dry in summer, the horses are still stood in massive amounts of manure.
    They don't stand in the pen day in and day out in summer they have pasture so your wrong on that. Plus in summer their stalled do to bugs for 12 hours so no their not in

    Muck all year.

    So once again your wrong then pens hardly have poop in them all summer.
    Their being stalled at night as of start of this post.

    Please give advice with consideration for the situation the other person may live in, and that it might be different from your own. And please accept advice gently from folks who might not know what it is like to live where you live.

    Thanks hopefully now it will be better. Iv tryed in several post to explain my situation some people on here don't get it. Or don't want to get it.

    Sorry for being rude but I was quit mad and to be honest still am.

    I'd just like to put in my 2 cents about the poop, snow, frozen ground and muck. I know that I have tried to stay ahead of the poop in the winter time, going out to the worst areas and trying to pick it up, but honestly, when it freezes, and snows and the horses don't stop defecating just because it's snowing, uh its darn near impossible to get the poop. This year I consider myself to be very luck because we know have an excavator and I can use that to help with at least putting the frozen poop combined with the snow, ice and frozen pee into biggish piles in the paddock. But doing it that way also results in the ground being torn up and well, no matter what you do, it's just not pretty. Even when I was a kid and my mom would go out and walk the paddock twice a day, by the time the snow started to melt there were still poop piles.

    And the soil type makes a huge difference in what you can do. I could put 3 loads of gravel in front of my barn and it wouldn't make one bit of difference because it's clay and the frost heaves up here just push it all out again. I've never seen frost heaves like this until I moved here: literally 3 and 4 feet highs and lows. It was really shocking to me. It is completely unrealistic in many situations to consider digging out the native ground cover and replacing it with gravel.

    So, Spirit, I hear your pain and to the doubters: sorry, but it's just not an ideal world and some things just aren't possible.

    Mad or not, you need to abide by the forum courtesy rules. I am sure things are tough. If you feel a bit steamed by a reply, please take the time to cool down before replying.

    Treating it 2x day with what ever is working for you, will help to keep the thrush from getting worse. I'm here in N. Michigan and have the same ugly mess until it dries and then composts, hehehehe. It really helps with keeping up with the hooves this time of year till things dry out and I put my guys out to pasture.
