Yes, if you mention it to every Amishman you run into I'm sure they will have their horse hold it until there past your place.

Dale...friend...there is alot of poop and other smelly things you going to run into living in the country..Got to role with the flow..Get you something to make some poop...Lordy I got cow poop...calf poop...and did have chicken poop until today...but will again...Personally I love the smell of a barnyard...but then I just a old country would be shocked if you saw the boots I wear to do chores in if you think that horse leaves a smelly

I wish they were my neighbors. Mine only leave paper cups and beer cans by my place. I'd love to see horse manure out there so I would not have to fertilize any more.

if thats your biggest problem in life then you should consider yourself lucky, sorry but i have little patience for folks that move into the country and expect everybody to change to adept to their ways.

Make lemonaid out of those "lemons".
Go into the "manure bib" business!
Put a sign out front:

Take your fertilizer back home with you!

It could be profitable. LOL

It even amazes me that townfolk have a problem with horse manure! If you move to the country, manure is part of the total package. Personally, I love the smell of horse poop: It means there's a horse nearby!

our neighbor runs a big stagecoach at summer events, and his percherons have "manure bibs" like big leather pockets under their tails.

if you are a fast runner and get a big cork, you can try that method, Don't know if it will work or not, but look at the fun you will be having

In the country, horses leave droppings, cars leave road kill. It's a fact of life that we must live with........gfp

Different strokes, different folks.

Its like the people who walk past my truck and stock trailer at the grocery store and turn their nose up and go "phew". They find it offensive...smells like money to me :)

Who was there first, you or the Amish? Your car leaves carbon monoxide and other pollutants as you drive past their places, so which is worse?

~Lenore    Posted 10-20-2004 at 08:35:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
dale, surely you jest!!

The only solution I can think of is MOVE out of Amish country!

I Agree w/ Red Dave    Posted 10-20-2004 at 08:10:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
Darn good fertilizer. Get your shovel and toss it in. No sense getting upset over it. But then again I don't have any in front of my house.

I guess you're just lucky, those road apples are good for the garden.

When you figure it out let me know and I will not have to clean our barn anymore! Mark H.
