Horse poo question?
    #3882162 - 03/07/05 12:49 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I was just about to pasteurize some recently gathered horse poo and as I opened my trash bag of it quite a few flies flew out..
The horse poo has been sitting in a bag for about 3-4 days.. The poo was pretty old i believe.
Anywayz is the poo still usable? can I just go ahead and pasteurize it or do i need to leach it first?

Does it smell like poo or dirt?

its not an over-whelming smell of poo... I can't give you a very clear answer on that..
It's a mix between earth smell and poo.

also: Is the wood chips that they use for the horse bedding alright to use as well? I just noticed that was mixed in so i figured i would ask.

If it smells like poo at all you may want to leech it. Not speaking from experience, only reading, but I've always heard, when its perfect theres no smell of poo.

Wood chips shouldnt affect anything, cubies will colonize it, long as there isnt to much. Even alot may not affect it negativly...

ok..thanks for the advice.

Anyone who has gathered poo before.. I am getting it off a big pile, the best poo for me to get would be the stuff thats on the top since its dried out the most?

actualy the stuff from the middle would be better, leech it for a week or so to be sure the amonia is gone but the bottom and middle are composted better, and the wood chips shouldnt matter much if they arent pine or cerdar

So what exactly do you mean by leech prisoner? Soak for 24hrs then dry for a week? I dont totally understand the process of drying the poo when you are going to get it wet again when you pasteurize it.

Soaking poo the first time around gets the ammonia out. That's true, it's going to be wet again when you pasteurize it, but you want the ammonia out by that point. Some mushrooms do good with small amounts of ammonia, but not Cubensis.

Read this to understand what's involved when playing with poo:

ok...
i've read the using poo 101 but prisoner advised that even tho the poo was old that i should still leech it (which differs from the using poo101).

So is completely drying the poo after soaking totally neccessary (assuming i was going to pasteurize immediately) cause i have quite a few jars ready i'd like to spawn sooner rather then later.

it may not need it but coming from a stable pile I recomend it, it's usualy within a week old, and leeching is a safe bet, you shouldnt need but about 12hrs of
soaking and the other 12 to hang and drip...

no, you'll be dunking it in hot water anyway so being completely dry isnt mandatory but I like to let the sun dry it for a couple days anyway... it helps
me to know the weight of the actual poo for my ratios.
