It's The Pits!

We are fortunate to live in a largely race-horse community. There is a sizable breeding facility just a half-mile down the road, housing as many as 150 head during certain times of the year bedding strictly on straw. A mushroom growing company hauls their straw away for free. Because of our close proximity, they occasionally need to top off a load and will pick up our straw as well. A good reason for us to bed this way. We researched this prior to building, and had Tim (our excavator) cut in a manure "pit" in a spot for the truck to have easy access. I'll add a photo of that truck picking up the straw when I can catch them... we don't know when they come--we arrive home and the pit is empty! A beautiful thing.
