21 buckets

using an ATV to tow a trailer full of 5 gallon buckets filled with horse manure

The Harbor Freight people sent the missing hardware pretty fast, but our priorities shifted a bit and the new ATV trailer project got moved down the list.

Seven full buckets of moist and aged horse manure is really too much weight for this lawn trailer, but the lazy side of me didn't want to do an extra trip.

Anna says these 21 buckets should be enough for this week and with any luck we'll get the new trailer finished and modified to carry either 9 or 12 at a time for next week.
