There is a rendering company somewhere, my ex girlfriend had horses and one would die once in a while. They would come for free. If it's fresh they make dog food out of it.

You need:
1) Backhoe
2) Heavy Chain
3) Large Tarp
4) Bunch of Hay

Procedure:
1) Dig hole as deep as possible
2) Line hole with tarp
3) Put down a layer of hay
4) Wrap chain around horse's hooves
5) Pick up horse with the backhoe and raise it in the air as though it was a donkey pinata at a Mexican birthday party
6) Lower horse into hole and unchain
7) Put a layer of hay on horse
8) Wrap horse and hay in tarp
9) Back fill the hole

I would like to place an emphasis on digging the hole as deep as possible and using the tarp..... this reduces the smell of rotting horse. The hay isn't for the after life, its for dead horse juice absorbtion. This is the method I learned and used, but I'm sure you could get creative.

50-200$ depending on location of the dead livestock.

Why the tarp? To control the smell?

As long as it stays below freezing, you have a while before it becomes a problem, above freezing not so much :-)

We've only buried one horse, I am sure its way worse with multiple dead horses, but we just dug a deep ass hole with a backhoe, dumped the bitch in there and filled it in. then got some more dirt and made a mound on top of that. Two or three years later I drove over the mound in my 4runner, forgetting the horse was under there. Never smelled though, and we didn't use hay or the tarp.

Yeah, my girlfriend always pays a backhoe service to come bury her horses when they die. I'm not exactly sure it's completely legal but the backhoe dudes are getting paid so they don't really care.

Probably legal, but varies by state. In Idaho you are supposed to call the rendering truck, but if pickup is going to be more than 72 hours, it is legal to bury (compost) the carcass.

Side note for those who haven't experienced it - there is no smell worse than what you get following a rendering truck on a hot summer day. :-) And there is always at least one carcass that is hanging on the edge about to fall off the truck - they must have a special way of loading to ensure that.

Yeah, just another measure to keep the smell down. I don't know if it's really necessary, but for a few bucks it might save you from having to smell that shit for weeks.
