Okay, so, I'm not sure what to do with the manure. I've just been piling it in one large pile in her pasture, away from her barn/stable. BUT, it's been snowing and the snow has done a good job at hiding it... So, what do I do with it now? As time goes on, the pil will get too big...right? What do I do when a dumpster is out of the question?!

I bag it up and sell it for $2. It amazes me how quickly people buy it, but then there are a lot of gardeners that love close to me.

I bag it up, and sell it just like Bek. Or my dad puts it around his trees. Its a fantastic fertilizer.

What do you guys use to bag it up in? It'd be nice to make a little dough to help with the feed bill!

We spread it out over the pastures with a rake, one wheelbarrow at a time as we clean. If we have any holes or puddles that need to be filled, we use the manure mixed with shavings from the stalls for that.

Nobody around here would buy it, you'd have to pay them to take it away. We do compost some for our own gardens.

When we kept the horses in the stalls at night we would just spread it around the fields and put some in the garden.

Right now I don't stall them at all, come this summer I'll probably plow some of the fields up with the manure from the fields.

Awesome fertilizer - And it's free :D
