colonizing fresh dung?
    #1054450 - 11/15/02 02:59 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I've read up on some teks that use dried up cow pies as bulk substrate along with hay, and everyone knows the rest of that story. My question is can/how do you use fresh (by fresh I mean from a compost pile that is kept on a bigger horse farm) dung as a bulk substrate. If the same pastureization methods are used, won't the fresh crap smell really bad? Any advice on using fresh horse dung with hay as a bulk substrate would be appreciated (keeping in mind that smell is a slight factor (don't want to stink up the neighborhood). Thanks all.

You cant use fresh horse poo for anything.
It has the urine of the horse in it, and that needs to be leached out.
I am sure there are other reasons why u cant use it fresh, but that is the most prominent I have heard. God I cant spell.

Simply lay out the compost on a tarp in the sun to dry for a couple of days (if not weeks).

Find some of the compost that is actually composted, maybe in the middle of the pile. It will be like nice dirt and works like magic. I use it all the time and it doesn't even need to be cased!

Don't you mean urea, a form of nitrogen? I can't imagine a horse shitting out urine, unless the horses dick comes back and pisses on the terd.

A horse kept in a corral shits and pisses in the same places, they don't have a urinal and a crapper seperately. So the horse will pee on the apples already on the floor of the stable. That's how urine ends up in the poo.

I never really understood where the urine in the poo came from. Thanks for clearing that up. I usually get my dung from the field and not the stable.

/me slaps himself in the head.
