For the last few weeks, we've been gradually been filling the manure spreader, catching up on picking up manure as we can. The spreader is small and maneuverable enough that Herb just parked it in the barnyard. The chickens love it; they spend all afternoon under its shade.
The ABI salesman recommended the Classic for us because it can handle both horse and cow manure, whereas the smaller Elite is made to handle only horse manure. Let's see what our Classic can do.
Conclusion: We LOVE our ABI Classic Manure Spreader! Herb was actually excited about going back up to the barnyard to shovel up more manure so he could use the spreader again!
Now if only we could train the horses to back up to it and dump it right in the spreader . . .
