    Question Manure Disposal Bags???

    What exactly are they? I just got a trailer and a ton of the "things to keep in you trailer" lists have them on there. I've tried googling it and haven't had much luck. I can pretty much guess what they're for from the name, but does anyone actually use them? If so where do you get them and how much are they?

    Just wondering if these are something I should actually consider getting.

    In commercial driving, "manure bags" are horse diapers. Could that be it?

    Horse diapers, manure catchers, manure bags- yes all names for something that might be required for a carriage horse to wear or to be fastened to carriage shafts to keep manure off the streets if required by town ordinance.

    But the things you use to empty the manure into from out of the horse diaper, manure catcher or manure bag? Why those "things" are called garbage bags down here.

    I know that some trail riding sites or parks that allow horseback riding are now requiring riders to pick up any manure their horse might "dump" on the trails. So maybe if you are using your trailer to go trail riding at one of these places, it would be a good idea to pack a manure fork and some garbage bags to put yor horse's manure in and take it back with you.

    Most of the parks with horse trails specifically prohibit riders from disposing of horse droppings in the litter cans- even if in a garbage bag.

    Just guessing.

    or are you just looking for containment of the road apples till you get home?

    In that case, I have heard people having good success with contractor grade trash bags. Handled with care they are reusable several times over.

    I think empty feed sacks would work just dandy.
