Horse Pucky: Horsie Delights

Surprise, surprise. I decided to use Horse Pucky as the "H" word for alphabet Thursday.

You all know what horse pucky means by now; horse manure in polite circles; horse shit to me. In either case, I sell the cured reconstituted vegetable matter and call it HORSIE DELIGHTS.

HORSIE DELIGHTS work great! Your indoor and outdoor plants will love them. You can use them in at least four different ways.

1. Liquid plant food: Place one HORSIE DELIGHT (one dried horse poop) in a large size empty mayonnaise jar (or other suitable container). Fill with water and let sit for 8 hours. Use about 1/4 cup on indoor plants every other week, then watch 'em grow.

2. Put one HORSIE DELIGHT in a watering can. Let sit 6 hours then sprinkle on outdoor plants. Your flowers will have blossoms the size of pie plates. Well...almost.

3. Dry plant food: Place or crumble one or more HORSIE DELIGHTS on top of soil, around outdoor plants that need OOMPF and let rain wash into the soil.

4. Crumble 1/2 of a HORSIE DELIGHT on top of soil of indoor plant and water as usual. Repeat in eight weeks. 

This stuff works great. One bag of HORSIE DELIGHTS equals approximately 5 gallons of liquid organic plant food. It'll last 3.3 years for one plant. It improves the soil, provides slow release of nutrients, and grows bigger and better flowers, veggies, and fruit.

Currently there's a flower garden contest going on in my townhouse development of 225 town houses. Tomorrow I'll find out who the winner is and let you know. Of course I use HORSIE DELIGHTS in the garden.

I don't know whether to take this serious or laugh... Great post either way.

I remember my aunt following the milkman's horse and cart specially to gather up the droppings. Her garden was a spectacle! The arrival of the motor car has killed all that.

Wow! That is very awesome! Thanks for sharing info on your "nuggets" of Horsie Delights. And your producers are beautiful their photo on your sidebar.

I have drawn quite a number of horses over the years and think they are such beautiful creatures. We have moved recently to Kentucky, where there are many, many beautiful horses.

I hope you get a chance to stop by...I have not posted since November of last year!!! So, it is so exciting to find comments and the lovely visits again.

Blessings & Aloha!

So how does one 'cure' these delights? Do you have to sun dry it? Glad you found a way to make it into a side business♫ My H:

Once I shoveled horse manure with 2 friends. We then transported the delightful stuff in one of our cars to our homes where we promptly put it on our gardens in order to get pie plate sized blooms!

My bag of Horsie Delights is such a great conversation piece that I would never use it to fertilize anything... No one can believe I actually got horse poop in the mail, but I have the proof! Besides we have so much Donkey Donk in the yard that we don't really need any Horse Pucky ;)

Take it seriously, Freda.

Hey, Randy, I'll have to put a bag on the coffee table for a conversation starter.

For all of you who appreciate the benefits of horse Horsie Delights, thank you. The stuff really works.

Ha! I love the phrase 'horsie delights!'

What a clever post!

I used to use horse manure on my gardens and boy did they grow like crazy!

Now I limit myself to Miraclegro but it's soooo much less visual!

Thanks for the happy link to the letter "H".
