Your Best Manure Photos Thread

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

See above, I added to the post.

Quail?

Woodcock, man! Yes, we have woodcock in east Texas. More numerous than quail, at one time, actually; but this discussion needs to go elsewhere.

Speaking of hogs, though, and undershorts ... a couple of weeks ago while on a walk, I spotted ~5 or 6 hogs with at least a dozen small pigs. They were crossing the road in front of me, and turned to stare at me when I tapped my walking stick against the pavement. "Oh sh*t"!, I thought, as I came to a halt. "There's more of them than there are of me"! Fortunately, they all turned and ran back into the brush.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

I never got a chance to hunt woodcock. Always wanted to. I've read so much about them, wonderful stories all. And those huge eyes! Beautiful little critters.

As for wild hogs . . .

Jack Unruh had a quail lease near Electra, Texas that was full of them. My setter, Freckles, took off after a pack of them during his first trip there. He was just a pup at the time. I was sure they'd kill him. We arrived in time to fire our guns and frighten the hogs off.

I did damn near poop my undershorts. (Said it again since you like the sound of that!)

Now back to our regularly scheduled program: cow pies.

Not so fast. Electra? That's way up north. When I speak of East Texas, I'm talking east of Dallas, south of I-20, more or less. It's a totally different world.
But yes, those wild hogs can be scary. And I've seen them run and jump like a whitetail deer, almost.
Now, back to the cow pies.

Next to the tractor, the manure spreader is my favorite implement of husbandry. My grandpa had a JD spreader very similar to this one:

I can usually figure it out when I smoke it.

The moisture content of most manure is too high to light unless it is properly cured. Even then you still have to be cautious of any remaining kernels.

Seems like a good thread to post this:
