Yes. If it is old it will be fine and can be used in place of food and bedding for your worms. Horse Manure must be well aged before using in our small bins, fresh manure can bring many problems with it including residue from the horses having been wormed still being active and killing your worms and herbicide used on the pasture which can remain active and affect you garden. Aged manure over 12 months will be fine to use, if you look at the pile of manure and see worms in it already then it should be fine to use.

Many thanks for your advice. As my wormery is doing great rather than take any risk I will put some horse manure in a container then add some of my worms and see how they get on.

Manure is a natural fertilizer. I am very much into gardening, I have a backyard where I grew lot of veggies and flowers. Whenever I got some free time from my cover letter writing service online, I look after all of my plants. I have used manure it is made entirely of organic materials it does not contribute to any form of pollution. There are three types of manure, green manure, farmyard manure, and compost manure. It is highly rich in organic matter.

Water is essential to horses for their well-being; and no animals delight more thoroughly in a bath. website
