I worked with horses for a very long time and I have plenty of free supplies! There's not much I don't know about horse ****
Just contain it as best you can OL. Frank's right - if you've got a corner somewhere and something to cover it with, that'll do fine. If you have a bin - use that, but like any rotting material, it needs some air and some moisture. Turn it every now and again if you can. The advice already given is all correct. Shavings are more widely used now for bedding and it can take a bit longer to rot down than straw, but I put a load on my new beds last August/September and covered them. It's all broken down now. I used some in the compost bin - no shavings there at all. It's brilliant stuff so it's worth making a bit of room for it somewhere.
