had several replies.... people wanting trailer loads, suspect these are small trailers !!
Would b e great if gardening clubs could organise a tractor & trailer and take a meaningful amount for the benefit of members !!

Round my way empty feed bags are filled with horse muck and make 1 to 1.50 a bag sold at the roadside. I have plenty muck but no bags sadly.......

And more available in north Fife for anyone that wants to dig/load it themselves ;) 

I don't have a tractor or I'd also offer loading from the 3-4yo heaps up the paddock but the flooded ruts are a tad offputting for car drivers with the loan of a wheelbarrow ;D so most are just taking last winter's from the barn by the drive ::) Still need to get someone with a dung graip to clear it to a heap for me, nobody seems free and willing to do the job :(

I'm not fit for that, Ellie, but I'll be round to see you sometime soon - got a lot on my plate just now with Club year ends, AGMs, and audits etc.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

I offer mine on freecycle and get rid of a lot that way.  Just had a request today from a Master Composter who seems to want tons, presumeably to share with people he is teaching.
