Flinging horse poop

Tongue    
Yard of my new house has zero organic content and I'd like to have some grass so the dog can play/take care of business without supervision.

Found a guy selling composted horse manure and bought some -- loaded my 16' tandem trailer and my pickup.

So now I've got to have more fun than one old man can stand as I spread it on the ground, then rent the 4' tiller for my tractor and just

Good news is it's dry and fairly light, bad news is I still don't like using a shovel.  Grew up on irrigation farm and did more digging than I care to remember

I better get some good grass out of this!!!!

What you need now is a manure spreader and a tractor to pull it.   The tractor should have a loader so you don't have to shovel it.   More toys

try mixing some biochar in there too...really holds the nutrients well.

Go to the local farm coop or whatever is close and tell them what you have. They can custom blend a small batch of fertilizer for fall application. You can get dry mix or liquid. My local coop does the liquid for me. Some times I wonder why I do it  because then I have to mow more. I also get their stuff for my garden. It is a lot cheaper than buying the ready mixed from the borg's.

When I was young and full of p8ss and vinegar, I worked on my father in law's farm during summers when in graduate school, and the first summer he got 3 tandem dump truck loads of composted chicken manure; had then dumped in a field, and sent me out there to spread it. Nasty job, took me 3 full days. I never forgave him for that...... but he was a good egg.

Cows/etc. digest everything (organic) they eat. Horses do not. Using horse manure is tantamount to seeding a lawn like a pasture.
