    My horses are in 3 acres and if they aren't out in the pasture they are in their runs...and if they are in their runs they are of course pooping... so when I clean out their runs I take the wheel barrels out to our poop pile... not sure what else to do with all the manure.

    I don't have a tractor so I can't spread it really...

    Suggestions?

    Craigslist it free. Or you can buy a small manure spreader.

    Garden! Compost it to kill weed seeds, then make a garden. Fresh veggies from your own garden are so good!

    Poo???......wonderful stuff. I grow the biggest onions and huge pumpkins from this wonderful compound.

    I'm using mainly sheep and chicken poo, but urine-soaked straw allowed to rot down will provide huge amounts of soil-enriching nitrogen.

    A wonderful animal by-product.
