Horse manure as a fertilizer

We have access to unlimited amounts of horse manure mixed with pine
shavings. The feed for the animals contains no antibiotics or other
harmful products. I would like to hear some ideas about the use of this
product as a fertilizer on our organic farm. The manure comes from their
stalls so weeds, etc. is not an issue. We allow the manure to sit for
about six months prior to spreading on the field. Any suggestions/ideas
regarding its use would be appreciated.
