Ok, I am still working on getting my first horse. yay! BUT I have some concerns. I am really trying to be prepared for owning a horse and trying to learn as much as possible. So here are my questions:
MANURE-what do you do with it?!!! I have been reading about it and researching but all it says is things like-most people compost it-can someone please elaborate! Do you have a manure pile? Where? What do you do with it then? What exactly does composting it mean?
DIRT PASTURES- is the pasture going to turn into dirt and mud? How do you prevent it?
WHICH IS BETTER- a run in shed or a 1-2 stall barn. I know obviously a barn would cost more money, but is it a better investment? You can confine the horse if it was sick or bad weather, ect. But is a run in shed all a horse needs?
Please let me know your opinion on these topics and anything else about horse ownership that I might be overlooking. Thanks!
