    Exclamation Does anyone have any ideas for my poop pile?!

    I plan on starting a bed and breakfast, but a poop pile won't be very inviting for non - horsey people. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do with the poop pile?

    I have thought of keeping it far away from the barn, but that would be very inconvenient for people when they clean out their stalls.

    If horse people don't understand a manure pile, then I have to wonder what kind of horse owners they are.

    She was talking about NON-horsey people.

    If that's the case, then why would NON-horse people be cleaning stalls? You can check your 'tude at the door, Epona.

    If it's an all inclusive B&B, I'd think the owner would have barn help for that and not expect her non-horsey guests to clean up after the B&B's horses.

    Speed Racer, I think the OP will have the barn and a B&B but the two are not necessarily related or catering to the same group of people. So, someone books a room for a night that has absolutely nothing to do with animals, horses, etc. they don't understand that a poop pile is just part of the environment.

    OP, how much poop are we talking about? How many horses? How far is the barn from the house?

    A couple of quick ideas:
    1. Do you have a tractor so you can move the stall clean out weekly to another location that is out of sight?
    2. Erect a fence on the side that the B&B guests see and plant aromatic flowers (lilacs are great and require NO care) in front of the fence.

    Pretty sure she meant two separate groups of people - the people who have stalls and clean them would be inconvenienced by a poop pile farther away, and the people at the B&B would be put off by a poop pile. Not that the people at the B&B would be cleaning stalls.

    At least, that's what I took from it.

    Can you not use a large trailer to put the muck in and ask a local farmer or market gardener if they would take it away from you regularly?

    I don't have a 'tude, I was merely pointing out something you might have missed in the OP.

    The non horsey people wouldn't be cleaning stalls, they would be the guests at my B&B. I would have hired help to clean the stalls. Read properly, and check your own "tude"
