Looking for horse manure

threeorangeboysFebruary 18, 2008

Does anyone know of a good source for horse manure in Northern Virginia? From what I understand,horse manure is a better choice than cow manure, yes?

Horse manure is better than cow - but it needs to be well composted before use or you'll have a pile of weeds. I'm afraid that I'm not familiar with sources in NOVA, but I did a search for "horse boarding, Northern Virginia" and a number of hits returned. Northern VA is big fox hunting country, so there should be plenty of stables in your area.
I don't know how far you are from Gainsville, VA., but there is a huge Alpaca farm there. Alpaca manure is primo stuff....
Good luck!

Here's another one. In Hamilton (a little west of Leesburg).

You can get composted horse manure at the National Park headquarters in DC at the intersection of Rock Creek Parkway and Military Road....bring your truck and they load it, or bring bags. And it's already composted!
