    Everybody poops, tee-hee

    There's lots of talk about what we put IN to our horses - it all has to go somewhere, so what do you do with what comes OUT of them?

    We do a good bit of "pasture picking" -usually on a daily basis (makes it so easy to keep up with), but at times it's only done weekly. The stall is cleaned daily. We have Mount Poo-ious at the back of our property where a lovely natural drop off makes it easy to dump the muck cart. Our next door neighbor is a big gardener, so he takes some of the leavings off our hands, haven't had to worry about what to do with the rest just yet.

    At my barn, there's a few gian muck piles (from the stalls). Occasionally farmers pick some up for fertilizer

    We have a muck pile field by our barn. Once it piles up, the BO will take a tractor and push it back about 30 feet and we start another pile. That has got to be some of the most fertile ground in the area.

    At my barn We let the horses out in the yard(no fence) to graze, when they poop we put it in the driveway so the cars will run over it, that go to the barn

    My Barn Owner spreads it around the property. Makes for really nice lush grass in the spring!

    Our horses are like ferrets. They pick a favorite corner and go there to poop. Makes pasture maintenance VERY easy. Same in their corrals! Well, AZ is like that. Dixie poops wherever she's standing in the corral.

    We have designated areas that we spread the poop each year. Last year it was along the pasture fence line to help the grass grow. It's REALLY green this year. This year, it's a bare spot in the center of the pasture that we're spreading it around and tilling it up in.
