Resources: When Your Horse Dies

Plan ahead so you'll be prepared to deal with his remains once your horse's time has come.

Several options exist for disposing of equine remains, though not all are available in all areas. Many factors influence your choice, including your personal preferences, local availability, land-use regulations, environmental concerns, and the expense. How and where your horse dies and whether he was chemically euthanized also will be factors.

Here are two resources that can help in your decision.
