white worms in manure

Help please.  I have recently bought some horse manure compost and it is full of small white worms about 1mm in diameter and about 1-2.5 cm long.  Concerned that they may be parasitic. Anyone know what they are?

    If they were parasitic in the horse they'll soon die and they won't be parasitic in you

    Just don't eat them and you'll be fine.image
