    I love the horse, goat, chook and cow manure. Same goes for the yak manure, even though I haven’t had much to do with it. But when it comes to the cat, dog, and human manure, i am sorry but there is no respect coming from me.

    What about vegetarian humans, dogs and cats it must make a difference.

    The smell of stables and farm animals is a warm comforting smell.

        Once I minded a child who’s parents and she were stict vegetarians she was about 2 and still in nappie and I could tell that child ate no meat I’ve never had a vegetarian cat or dog so you could be correct….

    I’m with you Lisa tho not to get too analytical but I’m pretty sure manure is manure because its from farm yard animals ie herbivores and includes organic bedding and litter such as straw, wood shavings etc, then there is green manure like a crop of lucerne that you grow and then turn back into the soil so i guess manure technically has to have a large amount of plant material in it. I am writing this because I am a huge fan of manure 🙂
