    One of the many reasons I’m your fan. =) Appreciate the tips. I’m also opposed to using chemicals, and do my best to recycle/repurpose, compost, and keep the water clean!

    Hi Casie, I thoroughly agree with you on all fronts to protect Mother Nature and our water resources. The owner of the farm in Texas where I have my horse has great healthy pastures for 40 horses and drags a heavy gauge harrow across the fields at least a 3-4 times a week. This method exposes the manure to the sun drying it out, invites all the birds to a feast on any fly larvae (barely any flies there!), and then quickly breaks down to enrich the soil…no water pollution. Glad to know horse owners look for ways to protect the land. Thanks for writing about this.

      Hi Helen–thanks for sharing that tip. I think harrowing works well in the dry climates. Managing manure is definitely something we all need to be vigilant about!
