Note of caution:

Many horse owners do not have the time to fully compost stall waste. You may need to finish the composting process on your property by keeping the material moist and aerating it by turning the compost pile. Please check with the horse owners to find the compost that meets your needs.

Some horses owners treat their land with herbicides, traces of which may pass through the horses and be found in the compost. These compounds may interfere with the growth of certain garden plants. It is your responsibility to ask what herbicides have been used in the production of their feed and hay. There may also be weed seeds in the compost, which may be undesirable in gardens.
