It's completely clean, and his poo piles are neatly at the end of his run. Easy cleaning! Reggie is next. His stall isn't quite so tidy. He poos inside and outside. We call him The Shark because he never quits moving. He walks through his piles, scattering little pieces everywhere. Slow cleaning. On the plus side, he has a urinal in his run, so his stall is always dry. His urinal is a favorite pee spot which we keep filled with pea (pee?) gravel. Works great. Boomer is somewhere between Paj and Reggie on the cleaning scale. He's really only messy because he's such a big guy. Ben is the most unique. He's pretty good about going outside, and he's straight as an arrow. This is what we see in the morning -
Manure Cart Review
We have 3 manure carts. I'd never buy this style again -
It has a backward tilt, which is a pain, and the kickstand is even worse. The kickstand catches on everything. You can easily dump a bucket of manure when you don't mean to. Ugh! The tires have failed too. I pretty much hate it.
This is a good cart. You can reconfigure it to move hay or bagged shavings. The big wheels make it easier to pull through snow and nicest to use for pasture cleaning. I like this cart a lot. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's wider than my favorite cart. It's not unwieldy, it's just that I'm going in and out of stalls before the morning coffee's kicked in, and I will occasionally hit the side of the doorway. It's like driving your little car and then switching to the station wagon.
This is my favorite cart. It's handy. It's at least 10 years old and held together by wire and cotter pins. My only complaint is that it's absolutely no good in the snow.
