THE IMPORTANCE OF POO-PICKING
Worms are parasites that can damage the horse and cause health problems. The eggs are deposited in the manure as it contains the perfect conditions for parasites. Horses grazing around this can ingest worms and become infected. Poo-picking on a regular basis is vital for the health of your horse.
Flies also reside around areas of manure. They are irritating for the horses whilst they graze. Removing the flies will make grazing much more enjoyable for your horse.
Areas of poo also discourage growth of vegetation. Poo-picking helps to maximise healthy paddocks and green fields.
