Using Horse Manure

Can I save Horse manure in a plastic bag for a year as I do not have room in my garden for a compost bin.I would like to use the manure as a mulch the following year.



I have kept manure for over a year in plastic bags. It seems to just rot down better. I don't know if it has any less nutrients after that time though. mrs mad.
