The term 'horse manure' actually means inclusion of straw, chips, etc from the stables. Sounds like good stuff but if it's mostly wood I would pick some out.

I posted earlier with a question about a source of horse manure that I found on Craig's list. Not wanting to limit my options (if the poo was not ideal) I decided to post to my local FreeCycle. Within 8 hours I had 4 people offering all the free horse poo I could take. Some even said that they had piles that had been weathering for the last year or two. Here is a listing of local FreeCycles:

http://www.freecycle.org/

I am embarassed that I ever actually bought Black Kow manure (although it has done me right in my outdoor grows- see:http://mycotopia.net...html?1092751283 ).

So if you are looking to try manure, you may want to try posting to FreeCycle. I just said that I needed it for my compost bins.

Glad it worked for you- always cool to have a local free source. I just realized that this could be a source of many needed things. You could ask for pressure cookers, jars, lids, coolers, humidifiers, tubs, etc.

Well instead of starting my own thread for this question, i figured this would be a good place to put it. When growing shrooms outdoors, could a print be sprinkled over aged horse manure and shrooms grow or does it have to be pasturized and spawned?

it's possible but odds are pretty slim,
better have many prints to spare.

This means it will contain wood shavings and urine. Do you think that this will be OK

Like mentioned above, soak overnite to remove the urine. Add some bleach
and lime to the water as well. If there's alot of chips, consider sifting it prior
to pasteurizaton. I use a collander to remove the chips. Wood chips are
unnecessary filler, sure they add texture, but so does verm...which holds water.

weathered, aged, dry poo. it shouldn't have any urine smell at all but rather should have a nice earthy smell.
i run my poo through a shredder to get a nice even consistency, which i believe helps with colonization times.
I would try and get some from the fields if possible, although the stall collected will work it's just not as clean.

The nose knows.....put any potential damp shiit into a plastic bag at room temp for a day - then open and smell it ,just like a bag o dope- the smell can tell u if it's golden....It should be earthy with a hint of musky sweetness but not shitlike or ammonia scented....If the smell is lacking then it may be past it's prime, although proly still useable for cubs..

Dixie's are a very beautiful strain! Thanks Dial8 for sharing these.
Hopefully I can find more of the missing pictures.

4 qts. sweet feed (horse grain)

5 gallons horse poo.


Cased- peat/verm/pinch lime



I found these to be very nice fruiters. And very fast.

Glad you like them. I'm searching out for some more of the old pix. This is still fruiting also. It has been transfered to another tub to see if I can get some more out of it.

As for spores, yes, it is a wonderful spore producer. Very dark.
Another bonus is the veil, it tears away without staying attached to the cap margin at all! And they turn up really nice :D

I :love: Dixie's!
