Horse muck

We have a huge heap of well rotted horse muck which needs a good home.    It is very easy to access and I wonder if you know anyone who might like some?    It could go straight onto gardens or be saved until winter mulching.    We have had all the horses in during the day this year and we are now running out of muck heap space. I would be grateful if you could pass the word around.     Best wishes, Sarah Fitzgerald 840895 ps   we can supply sacks or loan of our cart for removalContinue
