Hey, Road or Agar, poo's stinking a little......?
    #4061047 - 04/16/05 01:15 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Okay, so I let my newly acquired poo sit for a few hours soaking in some water in a big pot just to let it rehydrate.

Looks really nice, texture very similar to the stuff I got from tenn studd. However, when I stick my face in pretty close, it has a noticeable "shitty" smell.

It definately isn't stinking up the whole house, as I was gone a couple hours and when I came home I couldn't smell it..... until I stick my face up close, say within 12 inches.

I'm assuming that a few of the pieces I gathered were not completely leeched and weathered as well as I had thought. I'm assuming this isn't normal.

And I'm assuming that if I go ahead and pasteurize it with turkey tins my girlfriend may come home to a house that reeks....

Are these accurate assumptions?
Let me know....i'm holding off for now...it wouldn't be the end of the world to gather more poo tomorrow and just smell every piece individually. What ya think?

Thanks guys.
mark

I've gotta see this. You walking around a field picking up every little piece of poo, smelling it and either discarding it or placing in a rubbermaid and moving on to the next piece.lmao.  Even Juan Valdez would be envious. I do believe you're more worried about an ammonia smell,urine, then a shitty smell. Not sure though, all this shit shit is new to me. I saw the shit you found, looks great. All I can find is more broken down with saw dust in it. How do you think I feel when I tell a farmer his shits not good enough. Your shit stinks. lol.

Yeah, I really was avoiding having to hand pick my poo, but on the other hand.... you noticed that tenn studd's didn't smell bad AT ALL.

Oh, yeah, and by "shitty" I mean ammonia smell. Thanks for pointing that out hippiechick, and hello by the way, I see you on here often, but this is the first time we've spoken :wink: :thumbup:

Either way, I'm assuming it shouldn't smell at all, even when wet.  But that's what I'm checking about....

Hi, what's up? The ammonia smell means you'll need to leech it. If you have a place to do it, isn't that big a deal. I am going to hand pick mine. Found a nice old man who raises mini horses. He's gonna let me walk the field and pick up the good shit. Hope to find some nice stuff with a little white to it. Can't believe how excited I am to go look for shit. One man's shit is another man's treasure.

yep, yep, apartment, leeching is out of the question.... just want to know if a slight smell is normal during the soak and pasteurization process or if completely odorless is attainable when picked right from the field (like tenn stud).

even the stuff I picked today was hand picked pretty much... I didn't smell EVERY piece however, just the majority...so i'm figuring a few fresh pieces could have got mixed in and are now responsible for the slight smell.

is that you in your avatar....nice..

That Tennesse Stud shit was really nice. No smell. Ready to go. I hope Agar or Road ansewers these questions soon . I need to know this shit shit myself. I'll be going thru this shit shit in a couple days. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't.

lol....right on... :smile:

yeah, road or agar or diver will get around to it soon enough i'm sure.  The POO PROS. lol

but yeah, it is nice cause these little details tend to come up.  I just don't want to throw it out thinking it smells when really, no matter what it is going to smell a little bit.

Thanks though, HC

i thought i was the only one who got excited about a poo hunt.every time  i see a couple horses ion a field i think hmmm. anyway, just use the weathered stuff and i dont know that u have to soak it. maybe just add water before pasturisation(if your using an oven).
:blush:

Hey

I've done poo a couple of times :smirk:

If it stinks, it's either bacterial growth or ammonia....Either way, just leech it...say a day or two...

Then pasturize it and add verm. and/or w/e else you're adding...

Sounds like it just needs to be leeched and then loved :smirk:

lol

if it has an ammonia smell to it...it should be leeched.

just soak it for 24 hours....drain it...then rinse it real good before you pasteurize it.

aged horse poo shouldn't smell like ammonia...it should have a rich earthy smell to it.

just find a place to put the leeched poo for 24 hours...a shower or bathtub in the bathroom....some place.

next time try to find some horse poo with a little more white to it.
its always a good idea to break some open and check it..while you are gathering it in the field.

Thanks, that answers my question.... it also answers my question from my post earlier today about the white and green poo pieces.
Makes sense cause the white pieces were obviously WAY more weathered.....

I'll just be a little pickier next time I'm in the field, In the meantime a leech is in order!

Thanks

Some of it must have been a bit fresher than it looked in the pictures.

As R/K states, let it soak awhile.

Then, use a kitchen collender with a tight stainless steel screen (the mesh size that is used for screen doors & windows, or smaller), ladle out, rinse it until it has no fecal smell at all, then pasturize & it will be good to go.

Some of it must have not been weathered through & through. Now you know which is what. In the summer time sun, h/poo will dry quickly.

Yeah it looked pretty good in the picture.

He needs to find a little bit older stuff...then break some open to see what the inside content is like.

The summer is the time to load up for the bad weather months if you can.
I usually try and get as much as possible in the Summer so I'm not out collecting horse poo during the Winter and Rainy season we have here.

2 years ago I collected so much...that I still have half a garbage can full.
lolzz

I'll be out some time this next week checking out my Uncles field for some premo horse poo.

Right on, you guys are so helpful.... :thumbup:

Next time I go to the stable place, there was a whole field of the stuff that looked REALLY weathered.  I could see from the other side of the fence that it was all almost bleached to a straw color from sitting out so long.

I'm gonna grab some of that stuff next time, when I can find the owner to ask them if I can go in that particular field.... I was in the riding stable area or something last time, so they kept it pretty clean, kinda slim pickins.


but it's pretty sunny out here for the last week or two, so I'm sure there's some PERFECT poo to be found.

Thanks alot though guys, I will be a POO MASTER soon too, I just know it!
