    Catherine, lots of stables will let you haul off horse manure for free from their pile. It smells better than cow manure and is easier to work with.
    We use horse manure in our garden, and lots of straw.

    We have so many monarchs this year compared to last year.

    We have a professional beekeeper down the road and I swear we feed his seeds free all summer.

    More weed seeds though, in my experience.

    Composted cow manure doesn't smell bad and my gardener friend tells me that makes a difference.

    I do love the straw idea though. I do occasionally use that.

    Serious question. Is composted cow manure better than sheep manure. My favourite store has one discounted sheep manure to half of the discounted cattle manure. It is so tempting to get a bunch for next year.

    I'd read this and see what you think for your situation:

    Thank you Tybee. I will take a look at the actual N/Ph/P ratio of each, both are composted and in bags.
