This looks hard

Somehow, this does not look like it is worth it to me. They shovel all that manure by hand, then drive the horses to spread it.

Then again, who am I to talk? My manure spreader is actually UNDER part of my manure pile. And they do not even HAVE a manure pile.

I am always amazed at the huge number of things these big horses can do. My little cutters would not get very far dragging that turd wagon

But 'quaint' in the modern way.

Somebody's gotta to it? ? ?

Glad to 'read' so you must be feeling better.

Enjoy Carol

I used one of my mares to haul manure. Little bitty QH mare, 14H. I had an old car hood, I'd load that up, she'd drag it to the pile, I'd tip it over and we'd repeat. It was .excellent. training for her and I'm working on my mare to do the same thing now. Mojo is going to learn how as well. Xee....we'll see. She's far spookier than either Mojo or my mare.

Hmm.. they probably do not go fast enough to fling the poop on themselves or their handler, do they. I think manure spreaders are so interesting. Can you believe we have implements that fling poop in all directions? Really.

Beautiful horses and great organic use of poop.

My husband drags an old bed spring behind his mule(four wheeled kind) and spreads the gold in the cow pasture.
