Horse Manure Tea ?

I have two 32 gallon cans of raw horse manure and was wanting to experiment with a manure type of tea . Has anyone tried this?

Better off composting it first, pile should reach 140 degrees for at least 4 days, then make tea from the compost once any pathogens are cooked out.

My aussies love those pet smart frisbes too, esp the pink ones and the orange ones. The male likes to chew and mangle them though, so we go through about a dozen a year.

Thanks for the info. I will throw it on the pile and wait. I'm getting antsy to try this :-) My pooch gobbles up the PetSmart Frisbees as well. I got a new one on-line that has been indestructible so far called JAWZ. You can buy one at the link below.

Thanks for the link!

If you want to try something, get some good finished compost and make tea from that. For you to completely compost that manure it will take about 6 to 12 weeks.

Chicken manure works great in low doses. Granular.
