you really don't need to compost it...unless you really want to.

you can use aged horse poo...the drier the better.

What are the benefits of it being aged and dry?
just curious

leave it in the sun to weather for a couple weeks, break it up and give it another
week, by that time it should be a gray color and ready to use

you may need to water it once in a while, search for roadkills horse poo tek

aged and dry...is best.

because then you won't have to leach it...to get rid of the ammonia.

I age my horse poo on a large tarp...and leave it in the sun to dry out for a few weeks if its not dry enough on the inside.

break open some of the muffins and check the inside...to make sure its dried out.

I completely dry fresh h poo in about 24 hours in my dry, hot climate. Once it's completely dry, it has very little smell. I speed up the process by breaking up lumps several times as the poo dries and by spreading it as thinly as possible on a tarp in the small space I have until it looks and smells like bone-dry, fluffy, composted straw. It doesn't have to dry for weeks nor does it have to be washed to be usable. Field dried poo may have an added benefit of a kind of white mold, but I've used my quick-dried poo successfully many times. I collect mine from a local equestrian center, and I usually collect it directly from a corral so I can avoid poo that is obviously sitting in pools of urine.

This process is a bit labor-intensive, but the poo is otherwise free.

Just knock on any door where you see horses in the back. I have never been turned away empty when I've asked for horse manure for my organic garden. Usually, they shovel it up and stick it in a pile in the sun in a far corner of the yard. That's where you need to go scoop it up. It will already be dry and sun bleached. Seriously, they'll be glad somebody wants to haul it off for them.
