Are you referring to a compost heap being used to cycle horse/stall waste?

Our manure pile is about twenty feet from the paddocks on each side. Has been for 16 years, with no ill effects. It gets taken away every spring, and the horses aren't inside all that often so it's not very big. My Shetland has lived on the property for 16 years as well...she's perfectly healthy. I wouldn't recommend it, but with us we only have 2.25 acres with 6 horses and a pony.The flies aren't bad, in fact there aren't that many at all.
