Horse Pee

Description: Horse pee is spawned near Horses. It can be used to create compost.


Rarity color: Common
Renewable: Yes
Stackable: N/A
Durability: None


Horse pee is a configurable value - if disabled none of your horses will pee. Frequency can also be increased/decreased.

Horses produce pee slowly over time - this frequency is determined by the server config. By default, they pee approximately every 25 minutes of being loaded. Horse pee can only occupy a single block at a time, it does not stack or spread. If a horse remains in one place for a long period of time new pee puddles will occupy surrounding blocks in a small radius. 
If a horse pees on shavings it will convert to soiled shavings, if it pees on grass path (partial block) it will turn to dirt.

Pee can be cleaned (broken) by:

  • Right-clicking the puddle with an open bag of shavings
  • Right-clicking the puddle with a (connected) hose
  • Breaking the block below the puddle, or placing a block on top of the puddle
  • Pee will slowly be cleared by rain over time if uncovered


Shown: A single puddle of Horse Pee.


Right-click a wheelbarrow with Soiled Shavings (pee) in hand to add it to the wheelbarrow. As more of these are added, the wheelbarrow will visually fill up. Once 8 materials have been placed in the wheelbarrow, the contents will disappear and 1 Wet Compost Block will be dropped.
