Most horse owners know the frustration of having to manually clean horse manure from yards and paddocks. It can be a constant and back breaking job that consumes hours of valuable time. Our horse manure removal system saves horse owners and businesses hours of hard work, eliminating the need to bend over performing back breaking work a shovel and wheelbarrow. Cleaning up horse manure becomes a breeze with the innovative and easy design of the our manure removal system. With the ability to change from a scooper to a trailer to transport manure in seconds, there is no quicker or more efficient Horse Manure Removal System available. Attach the unit to a tow vehicle such as a ride on lawn mower or quad bike then drag it along behind to scoop up manure.

Once a paddock is finished, the unit is easily converted into a small trailer in less than 20 seconds to transport and dump the manure at a site of choice. The horse manure removal system also acts as a yard trailer, designed to accommodate 2 small hay bales; its dual use makes it an essential piece of horse equipment for your property.

It's kind of neat but and I hate cleaning up my horses crap so if I could get one for under 300 I would buy one

Unfortunately this thing works nice and cool only on nice flat ground. Most horse pastures around me (including my place) are hilly and very uneven, so I doubt this thing would work all that great. So I wouldn't buy one. Still a good idea IMO, but just not for my area.

After watching the Video,I see more how it works.

It would be a great thing for small, well manicured paddocks or a front yard

But for the average pasture in our area it would not work or hold up to the abuse.

.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

How much does it hold?

I pick my paddocks 2x a day and with 3 horses, I end up with a wheelbarrow full each time. Our wheelbarrow is huge - and I'm doubting all of their manure could fit in that thing. And if it did, it would probably be really heavy for one person to pick up to put the wheel under it.

And I agree with the uneven/hilly land comments. Wouldn't work at our place. Might be great for someone with nice flat fields though...

If it was available with a "spreader" modification I would buy it, otherwise I would not. I do not compost my manure, I rake it in the pasture.

For pens at one of the places I board - they have all the topsoil removed and are filled with bark to eliminate mud and so have to be hand picked - this would not work.
For pans which have not been regularly picked - this is not heavy duty enough. You would have to use it on all fields once a day which is not practical. But for those who pick their paddocks every day this could be a good time saver.
I would be interested to try it out before I bought it. With a 2-4 week trial I'd pay up to $500.
