Wood shavings in Horse Poo?
    #4517490 - 08/10/05 11:20 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

All the horse farms I have spoken too are glad for me to harvest their waste.........but the poo is mixed with wood shavings from the bedding. I checked the ph once I mixed it with worm castings and straw and the it was close to 7. It makes a nice airy mixture with the wood shavings, but is there any drawbacks to using this mix? I hear of everyone using horse poo........but no ever comments on the wood shavings being mixed in. Any ideas?

I would assume that they would be fine as long as they are pasturized along wiht the mix. They area just another thing that could be found in nature, after all that is what we are simulating.

the only time I've had a problem with wood shavings in poo is when cedar was used,
it and some other species have a natural fungicide which helps slow decomposition
usualy the stable owner knows what sort he has, virtualt any hardwood chips will be fine

Thanks for the help all - I am using them for an outdoor bed, so I didn't pasturize anything........colonization looks strong!!!
