I never heard of anyone putting it in molds. My dad used horse manure this year on his garden and its going crazy, everything is getting huge. Make sure the manure your using is dried and just crumble it up and till it into the soil.

Crumbled old poop is what you want. You can't use every poop on every garden. Know how much you can. Sheep is a universal. Cow/etc have their place. Just amount varies not to burn your garden. We had gone out to an old farm site of sheep and gotten old, old stuff, was wonderful. It is hard to find sheep poop at the garden centers. Mennard's happened to have it this year and I got.
