HORSE MANURE TO LIGHT ROYAL STABLE

By Bob Silbernagel

Manure from 170 horses that make up the Royal Horse Artillery in the United Kingdom will be made into pellets to create a biofuel, according to the BBC.

The mounted regiment, also known as the King's Troop, is to move to a new headquarters in 2011, and the horse-generated fuel will help it to meet Britain's targets for reducing carbon emissions.

In the photo here, members of the King's Troop participate in state ceremonies in Hyde Park.
