Three years ago, we were given an old thoroughbred mare. They said she was twenty two yrs old, but she was all skin and bones and I figured maybe closer to 30 yr old. Heck she could mow the pasture as well as any other. She didn't take much care and was sweet as could be. Happy to be breathing I guess, since she would gone for dog food at a sale. Her teeth were still good and she actually put on about three hundred pounds. Well, this am I went out to do the morning feeding and she was standing next to the water trough with a busted leg. She was just loping through the pasture last night. Darn shame. I called the offal company, they will put her down and haul her away for $75.

Screaminghollow. Sorry for the loss of your horse in that way.You did well to provide for her in re
tirement. I enjoyed your story of the jack that remembered you from the past. Kinda' tugged at the ol' heartstrings.

She may deserve a dignified burial. Know someone with a backhoe? The farmers around here seem to plant 'em rather than call in anyone.

Changing times. I remember when dead animals, (Horses, Cows), were picked up free of charge.

Sorry about your horse...........gfp

up untill about 10 years ago, they used to pay US $10/dead cow. then it was to the point where we had to pay $25 to get rid of one! I hear it's back to the point where they come get 'em for nothing again. I wouldn't know....When we had to pay, I started to bury them right here on the farm, I'll be damned if I'm going to pay them to feed their mink!
