How to use horse manure for mulching.

I have a friend that has horses and I want to use some of the manure to mulch my garden before I plant this year. How much should I use and how long before I plant should I do it? I don't want to ruin the soil! I have not decided on the size of my garden as of yet a ratio by square foot as to how much would be most helpful.

My Autumn Blaze is turning red in June

I had a 3” autumn blaze put in in early May. And now the leaves have started to turn red. Most of the leaves are full of red mites. The mites had been on the leaves for a few weeks before the color change. We have had an excessive amount of water this year. So much that I had to dig a couple holes to pump the water out around the tree because I thought it was drowning. Would the excessive water cause the problem? A few weeks ago I started using a root stimulator fertilizer. That I use every 10- 24 days. What can I do? Thanks George
