    Who would be willing to pay for someone to come and clean up manure piles? Or another option would be to leave a container on site and pick it up when full. Looking to start a business and trying to see if it is needed or not. Please respond with honest feedback.

    Hi, we have a small paddock on a piece of adjoining property (1/3 acre) that we own in the middle of a neighborhood. We keep a large pony in the paddock and I'm feeling quite conscious of keeping the impact of us having a horse low for our neighbors. I'm prepared to muck the manure frequently...

    This is an ethical issues I just lived through; I could use some support. Who doesn't clean stalls so manure piles up then feeds on the manure to prevent colic? I recently removed my horses from an ranch who didn't ever clean stalls so the manure piled up to prevent the horses from eating...
