Q.Horse manure

Anonymous added on November 2, 2014 | Answered

I have 5 horses and am having problems getting rid of it (manure). Can l freeze it to keep it fresh to use next spring and get the most out of it, or is it better to put in a 45-gallon drum with water and let it soak?

With horse manure for the garden, it's better to let it age rather than use it fresh. I would recommend composting it. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/manures/horse-manure-compost.htm

In addition, let others know that you have an abundance of manure that you would gladly give away. People love free stuff and many will gladly take your excess manure off your hands.
