Today’s Horsey Friday Fun Facts is the Scoop On Horse
Did you know that . . . .
– a horse produces 33-50 pounds of poop a day?
– if a horse is kept in a confined area, up to 8 tons of waste is to be mucked out per year?
– although fresh horse poop may stink little, many people actually favor the unique smell of dried horse manure?
– three quarters of fresh horse poop is water and the rest is dead bacteria, undigested fiber, fats, dead cells and phosporous?
– horse poop tends to be green if green roughage is eaten (such as grass), and yellow when light colored hay eaten?
– horse manure is a clean, natural product used by landscapers and farmers as topsoil and fertilizer? There are special horse-manure composting bins and products on the market.
– dried horse manure is great for growing roses and vegetables? I can certainly vouch for that. Every spring I add more composted manure to the soil and my crop is huge.
