I'm new here, came from the shroomery.
These boards seem much more civilized, so, I think I'll stay if you'll have me
I've got eight acres out in the boonies with six horses. The question I've been asking is: how do I get the horses to work for my evil, diabolical mushroom scheme?
Well, I think I've got it!!
I've been feeding them spores for the past three months.
first, I take a full print syringe, shoot it in their feed, and feed them normally.
Here are some pics of the process:

And, there you have it!
I've allready got mycellium in some of the manure.
All we need now is some rain and humidity, and there should be mush this season.
Let me know what you think.

It's for real. I just made a pile of dung that I've been watering for a few days in a cool spot under a couple trees. It allready has mycellium here and there.
Actually, I (and the few people that I've told) think it's funny too
I tried it on a small scale last season with pretty good results, so, now that I have a buttload of spores, I thought I'd go all out!

sounds interesting .
so you shoot the spores in the grain i suppose ?
could be a nice addition to permaculture ,lol
good luck and keep us posted ,if u like

I had heard that this method only works for cows because of horses stomach acids. i am curious to see your results if you can prove that wrong

horses don't have stomach acids, they just have a loooooonnnngggg intestinal tract.
that's why they say cubies only grow from cow, buffalo, and horse manure.
cubies seem to like cows better though

i like the idea of making syringes straight out of the bag like that. what about if you shot like 40 cc's into the bag with the print in it and had 8 syringes full(except 5cc's) of sterile sterile water and just sucked the 5 last cc's out of the "spore bag"?
think it would work?
if you have some of those 3 1/2 inch needles you hardly even have to open the bag except to let the syringe tip in.

actually, I use this method on all my syringes. the only REALLY important thing is sterility of the print and the foil it's on. I've found the small ziplocks to be surprizingly sterile.
I make sure I'm using the same syringe to go outside and shoot the feed every time.
I really like my syringes to be pretty dark, so I usually use one print the size you see in the pic to make no more than 2-3 10cc syringes.

When it comes to feeding your horses the spores, does it have to be sterile? I would think not, since the feed isn't, their mouths aren't, etc. You could easily make gallons of non-sterile spore water and use that instead.

If you gave them a little bit at a time, over a long period, my guess is that you'd have a higher success rate because you'd have spores in every lump of crap that came outta them.

Just speculation...

That is what I would do. Since you are feeding the spores to your horses, then it doesnt have to be sterile. Take several large cake pans or casserole dishes and print every cap you get onto them. You can even print on top of other prints. When the entire bottom is black, fill the pan with water, and use something to scrape all of the spores off of the bottom. You can then dilute this solution into many, many, many gallons of spore water. You would have enough to water the poo in the fields, as well as feed the spores to your horse.

that sounds good, I may try that
You really got to get the spores in the horses system, instead of just spreading over poop. The horses (and cows) insides are just the right environment for the spores to germinate and start their trippy little lives
I've also not been too worried about sterility as far as feeding the horses spores.
I also wouldn't feed them whole mushrooms (gotta save the fruits for later journies)
if rabbits don't have stomach acids (and you feed them any type of grain), it should work.

Ok, I've taken a gallon ziplock and turned it inside out to print the inside of the bag.
in 24 hrs, I'll turn it rightside out, and put some water in it for a 60cc syringe and a quart jar of distilled water.
It's good to be with you good people, you're suggestions make me think more!

people have been talking about doing a tek like this for quite some time, i can't wait to see how it turns out, cause i am really thinking about trying something similar with cows. keep up the good work!


this one is definately going in MY archives!

I've been thing of putting some solution into a spray bottle for a cow field nearby. We have an r/c flying club there, so we are allowed to walk around and look for crashed plane parts (within reason)

Yeah, go nuts with the spray bottle. That's my plan for the summer... actually, I'm in the NE USA, anyone have tips on where to spray besides livestock fields?

k mush, good stuff man..

What is that cube harvest on the pink towel, are those your results from spreading cube-spores?

And also: That second picture confuses me, the one with the little cubie growing from the manure.. ??'You sprayed that thing with spores and it grew??

Also, i would have to agree, the sterility of the spores doesn't matter much once outdoors, or in such a fashion. You could probably dilute a few thick spore prints into a gallon jug of water (is what i would think).

The key (imo) is putting the spores through the animal, they have to eat them..and you would have to feed them spore solution in a consistent manner until you see results.

Neat project.

the caps on the towel are from an indoor grow. i'm just using the spores to feed to the horses.

"And also: That second picture confuses me, the one with the little cubie growing from the manure.. ??'You sprayed that thing with spores and it grew?? "

I've been feeding the horses spores for a few months and collecting some of the dung. I made a pile of it in a nice shady spot to see what would happen. with a spray of water every day, the cubes will surface (and they are slowly). if my plan works, we'll see the feilds covered this season.

K-Mush Dude, you RULE!!!

Here I thought I was spending too much money on my new hobby and you go and buy a horse farm just for shrooms! Damn!!! I've gotta get the old lady to see this one! Hell, maybe she'll let me get that mini-green house now.

Thanks, K-mush Dude!

some plantseeds need to pass through animals for better germination ,so in that aspect it's not really surprising ,but still ...great project...the horsedidittek
