It hasn't steamed before though. My dad just got home so I am going to drag him to the barn to check it out ;)

Thanks for the link! It was interesting to read about how you need a balance of carbon, nitrogen and bulking material.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Ours will usually steam when it gets pretty hot out. I always go out and check it when it does this and its never smelled of smoke.

Like others have suggested, if you can, turn it over several times a year to help with that as well as make sure everything mixes and decomposes well.
