And Maggie, as I've mentioned previously, if you HAVE had the horse 
euthanized, you NEED to dispose of it in some manner other than leaving it to 
the scavengers unless you want to endanger the lives of birds.  Burial, 
cremation, rendering plant, whatever--but if you leave the horse out, you are 
trading the suffering of one species for the suffering of another.
