Hi,
I just collected 2 pickups full of old horse manure from next door and the straw / lucerne / alfalpha they have eaten.Very dry. Tried it in my toilet and it works a treat !Layered like lasagne. Bonus is the smell.It is just like fresh straw again after using. I dump my contents under light soil to start.Then after 3 or 4 weeks, it goes to the red wrigglers in the worm farm.No chemicals at all mind.Very sweet. Have fun.

Well aged horse manure would make a suitable cover material as long as odor is not an issue.

I am wondering if it would be possible to use well aged horse manure as a cover material in my bucket? I have access to lots of old horse manure and was wanting to use it (screened to break up the lumps) if possible. I would still use straw and weeds as compost pile covers. Thanks for your help.
