Vida, I must ask first ... are you loco or the horse? (KIDDING!)
What size spreader do you have? I just have a John Deere 4300, I can get a little one for that can't I?
On the loco part a little of both
On the manure I age and turn mine too. I keep piling it up all winter and then spread it in the spring. Funny to see it "cooking" out there on a cold day.
I have a small Frontier (John Deere) spreader MS1102 25 bushel. Its a ground driven spreader but I pull it with my 4 wheeler. I use the tractor front loader to load. That way I don't have to keep unhooking the spreader to load it.
My 4 wheeler (a John Deere Buck) has no trouble pulling my little spreader. If you plan to pull it with your tractor you could step up to a much bigger spreader.
