Looking for recommendations for disposal after euthanasia. Need something on the low $$ end. The contact # I have for Robert Smith is not working...
Any suggestions would help!

Hi,
Unfortunatly, I just had used Bud Walsh. He has a wonderful man that is doing pick ups for him.
Bud Walsh's number is 978-346-9244 ( if have two) 978-337-3742.
Let me know if you can't get in touch, I have Buds driver's number somewhere.
Sorry you are going through this.

Sorry Mollycat that you are at the end of the trail, but you are doing the right thing by making your arrangements prior to the sad event. Have heard great things about Mr. Walsh and Ct. Horse Cremation.

Thanks for the contacts. I have heard wonderful things about CT Horse, but big $$$--same as AngelView.Will try the Bud numbers. Once the awful decision is made, it is almost harder to actually get the thing done!

mollycat- I had to have my husband call the vet. And I did ALL my communication with CT Horse via email. I just couldnt hold myself together enough to speak. Typing it out was hard enough. There's nothing harder than making this decision. Know your'e not alone. And that you are making the best choice for your horse. Even if sometimes it wont feel that way.

Robert Smith is doing the pick ups for Bud Walsh. He came for my gelding a few weeks ago. It was $500 for him to come to Princeton for my boy.

His number is (978) 852-5717

They do a burial on their property in Merrimac, MA. I looked him up years ago and he owns a huge plot of last out there. The MSPCA uses them for burial of their deceased horses, which for whatever reason made me more comfortable...

Robert Smith was extremely kind and respectful when he came for our boy’s body. I would definitely recommend him.

Bud has taken two of my horses. They were very kind and respectful. In my head both of them are buried on a hill under a beautiful tree.
