Keith,  RYC on horse manure carrying tetanus--actually, it's not the manure 
per se, but the ground from which you pick it up.  Clostridium tetani spores 
are found in soil and therefore on objects in contact with it (my mom was 
always certain we were going to step on old rusty nails and contract the 
world's fastest case of tetanus).  The moral of the story is, make sure your 
tetanus shots are up to date regardless of whether you're working with horse 
manure or not.  And don't step on rusty nails.

Barb, in Santa Fe, zone 5, where is was actually warm enough today to do a 
little cleanup in the front iris bed.  'Course, it's supposed to snow

On the subject of horse manure:

I have access to as much as I want and compost it before using.  I've
actually grown to appreciate its "bouquet".  The stuff is wonderful as far
as I'm concerned and I would probably not have much of a garden without it.

But I've also been told that it carries tetanus and if one uses it they
should be up to date on their shots.

If anyone knows differently I'm sure the group would  appreciate hearing
so. Still, nothing could be more [insert adjective here] than a chatterbox
with lockjaw.

Keith, Zone 5, cornucopia of white stuff
