Table 4-19 lists characteristics of "as excreted" horse manure. Because large amounts of bedding are used in the stables of most horses, qualities and quantities of wastes from these stables generally are dominated by the kind and volume of bedding used.

Some properties of rabbit manure are listed in table 4-20. The properties refer only to the feces; no urine has been included. Reliable information on daily production of rabbit manure, feces, or urine is not available.
