Emergency manure hauling

horse manure in 5 gallon buckets on a trailer

Our new hired helper went a few extra miles today by bringing his utility trailer along for some emergency manure hauling.

"It won't be a problem" was his reply when we asked him.

I'm thinking it went a bit smoother loading buckets onto a trailer compared to the higher up truck bed which is still at the dealer.

Why was it an emergency that the manure was hauled? I love this! :)

Emily --- I guess it wouldn't count as an emergency to most folks, but I needed to plant a bunch of vegetables today, and I was all out of manure! So glad Mark could come through even without the truck.
