I wonder if anyone has ever used a mix of Topsoil and Peat Moss for bedding for their horse.

I've been reading about this in Karen Hayes' book The Perfect Stall. I'd like to see if anyone else has tried it and what they think.

Also -- anyone use PROPERLY composted manure as bedding? I've read that it is sustainable, pathogen free, weed and bacteria free, absorbent and smells good... and if you compost, it's free!
