Well I hooked up with a person from the bulletin board at the local tack and grain store in my town...She boards and raises high dollar horses for the local rich folks.

I went and got 40 lbs or so of this shit. It is very earthy smelling and looks and smells like it is mixed with wood chips/saw dust. I am fairly sure it will work for my pan mix..but what do you guys(mainly H3) think about using it for bulk sub for cubies? I have yet to pasteurize it but I will be after the new year festivities.

Heres a couple pics. Let me know what ya think plz.

I myself just picked up about 60lbs of horsey crap, mixed it heavily with straw. Will pasteurize when I'm ready.

I don't see why it wouldn't work for the pans, not sure about cubies and wood though.

If manure isn't green, it will work.

That's the stuff I use for making compost.

There were alot of pine chips that were lining the horse stall in our recent hpoo collection - (5-10%) while it helped the smell -- it threw the pH WAY off.. so be careful - our colonization is severely retarted.:puke:

Most people that own horses these days use hardwood dust instead of evergreen dust in their stalls. I think it had something to do with making the horses ill or something.

I just found out why most don't like to use evergreen dust in their stalls.

It resists decomposition and can cause allergic reactions on the skin of some horses.

found some local thoroughbread hpoo a while back. they would use wood shavings in it as well. the wood content does look rather high in that poo. and it does look moist. you may want to compost it a bit and mix it with some finely ground straw. it even looks a bit leafy. im sure it will colonise but maybe upon drying you can separate it using a lizard screen cage.

The reason it looks wet is due to the rain we had two days in a row prior.

Check this out though. I talked to the lady and she told me that there wasn't any wood mixed in. It sure looks like theres wood in it to me. I don't think she would have any reason to lie though.

There's definitely wood dust in that. And it hasn't been composted down either, or it would be caramelized.

All of the people I know that have horses, have hardwood dust in the horse's stalls for bedding. All of them.

No doubt about it, there's wood dust in that stuff.

I know it will take a bit longer but you could just go around the field picking up turds, right? Last place I went to had wood in there too (all stable droppings are going to be like this) so I asked if I could just stroll around the field.

stable droppings often have a very high urine content too
so field gathered is better.
