Now here's an interesting article. In my latest email from the Equine Compare Newsletter, there was an article about using horse manure to heat your home. I thought, hmm, interesting idea since many horse owners lament what to do with the poo. Seems it is not smelly upon burning, provides good compost from the ashes after it burns and is environmentally sound. I'm all for things to 'keep it green' so to speak and the only negative I could see was it does seem to be a time consuming process. Of course there IS that 'down and dirty' aspect of it where you have to mold the poo into bricks to be used for burning, but that's what shovels and gloves are for.
Here's a link to build your own poo mold with more information from someone who experimented with this fuel source.
And another link to buy a poo mold for the time constricted and those who couldn't build anything but character.
Anybody ever actually do this? I'd be willing to try it, how about you?
