All horses produce manure - and lots of it.
The average 1,000-pound horse produces about 50 pounds of manure a day and this does not include the bedding. When you consider the horse eats about 25 to 30 pounds of feed a day, the manure production is an amazing feat. (Of course the difference is moisture and body tissue waste.)
If western history sparks your interest, we have news for you! If you can picture the misty scenic country of Missouri's Ozarks logging roads with it's rivers and rocky terrain; imagine yourself camping surrounded by the all the amenities such as an 63,000 sq.ft. indoor arena, over 2000 indoor stalls, 59 outside stalls, restaurant, feed and clothing store; for your horse and your comfort...all this and only 2 hours from Branson the new entertainment hub...then Eminence, MO in October is where you want to be!
Most of my adult life I have lived on the same property as my horses. There are multiple reasons why someone would want to do so, but it was just my natural choice. In the past 3 years, I have not. After marrying we both kept our properties and would stay at both places throughout the week. After babies this wasn't possible as my house was too small. So, I have been driving half hour each way to care for horses.

Maybe the chemicals you're using aren't working as well as they once did. Or maybe you've become concerned about long-term use of pesticides.
