If you have land to bury your equine, there are a couple of options for you.
Getting a backhoe to dig is the greatest challenge for most. The Rural Cooperatives will often come dig the hole since they have the equipment for a fee. Normally $150
Another option is to contact your County Commissioner. Some Counties in Oklahoma will come dig the grave for your equine at no charge.
