Farmyard manure & dogs
I've just bought three bags of farmyard manure & three bags of horse manure (anyone know the pros & cons of either?). Took them down the end of the garden, but one bag had a slight split in it and my dog started tucking in to it He does occasionally eat fresh cow/horse poo on walks with no side-effects, but I'm now very reluctant to spread whole bagfuls around.
Does anyone have any experience of this? Has your dog had a few tastes and then not bothered? And what can I do with all the manure otherwise? Could I mix it with something else in planting holes, or add it gradually to the compost bin, for instance?
