2009 dodge ram horse manure

This one goes out to kissel1.

My husband desperately needed horse manure and a bale of straw for his vegetable garden, so we took our annual trip to the LA Equestrian Center in Burbank over the weekend. Last year, we easily fit 2 bales of straw and about the same amount of manure (about4 large trash bags full) in the back of the long-term Tundra.For this trip, we packed the bed of our long-term 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with just 1 bale of straw along with4 bags of horse poop (sorry I didn't get the money shot of the bags open in the bed this year).

Even with the intrusion of the Ram Boxes into the bed's usable space (for this purpose, at least), there was plenty room for more, but we only needed that amount (a little straw and composted manure go a long way in a small urban backyard garden).

After shovelling horse doo into the bags in the hot mid-day sun, my husband was really grateful for the Ram's optional ventilated leatherseats.
