Weekly Task Challenge:Spring Cleaning - Manure!

If you don't know what to do, have little time, or just feeling stuck, try the weekly task as a way to at least do something with your horse! (It just may motivate you to do more!)

If your place is anything like mine, winter is ending and the snow is thawing which can only mean one thing...mud season! Well, in addition to mud, I've got a lot of manure to remove. I know how I'm going to do it, how about you? I am not only going to remove the manure (by hand and with a borrowed skid steer, but we will be composting it for our garden. We grow most of our vegetables for the year and our horses help! So, this week's task is all about manure. Write down a plan not only of how you will commence with the spring manure cleanup but, make another list of how you might use this valuable natural resource! Remember, reduce, reuse, recycle! :)

Yes, manure. And more manure, and some mud too. All Augie's white legs are brown. I don't know how he does it, but when he rolls he manages to practically encase his head in dirt - he looks like the buried ceramic horses unearthed in China - Emperor Qin Shihuang's terracotta army LOL.
