Blogathon 10/18

Continuing the everyday look at everyday objects through the camera lens…

Stable management (not as in keeping everything shipshape and Bristol fashion) is a widely-encompassing term for, amongst other jobs, shovelling horse manure.

Now that Prem is sound in leg and back, and he’s turned out all day, he only has to be mucked out once a day.

Such a relief!

As with any other job, mucking out a stable of horse wee and manure needs the right tool.


Here they are.

A pitchfork for shifting hay bedding around.

A stiff broom for sweeping up.

A giant pooper scooper for scooping giant poops.

And a wheelbarrow.

The contents of that wheelbarrow are this morning’s mucking-out waste.

    On the other hand, there’s money to be made from horse dung.

      I don’t know anyone who has made anything from horse muck. Except the farmers who get paid to take it all away
