    How interesting. In the clip, the woman says they're testing a yeast that works in the hind gut. I wonder if it's the one I use for my horse ...

    Will watch tonight, although I could practically smell that manure they were working with.

    Always love watching Mike Rowe! Mike Rowe playing in manure at an equine facility and getting razzed by women should be fun times!
    Thanks for the head's up!

    Ah I remember doing this with cow poo and horse poo and worse while I was in graduate school.

    Our house was used on an episode of dirty jobs. We used a diaper service and they came to our house to get the dirty diapers and then followed them through the cleaning process.

    I watched the show last night and found it quite interesting. Those are some well mannered two year olds to let a novice horseman work around them without getting upset.

    Very cool show. Very informative, with Mike and his favorite, poo, added in. Even to sticking his arm in the back end to pull out a fresh ball. I just wonder how they taught those young horses to gallop 3 miles on a treadmill.
