What to do with Horse Manure

I know a guy who wants to hire me to load/ truck his horse manure b/c it's taking up space at his house. I'd say the pile is approx 6-10 10 wheeler loads. Any idea if i could or who i could sell this too? no sense in wasting it if i can get some money from it?

thanks

Im no manure expert but i would say that a plant nursery or farm may take them for fertilization, you just have to ask around

Just be careful in many areas you need a manure dealers license to handle large amounts of it. Even to haul it. Just a looking out tip.

The best thing to do is spread it on a pasture somewhere... a corn field or have it plowed under at a nursery...
Of course one of the best things for city folk to do is turn it into compost and spread it on turf...
