Not all equestrian boarding facilities are the same. Some are high-technology affairs featuring amenities such as automatic waterers and stall cams. Others are more rustic, and they’re all about the simplicity of a clean stall with water and fresh grass. The end result, regardless of the price point or pedigree of the facility, remains the same. It’s to give a horse a place to rest, a place that’s quiet, clean, and safe.
The other feature that remains the same is the sad fact that, sometimes, beloved horses will pass when they are on the premises. When that happens, you need a company that combines experience, competence, and speed. You’ll get all of that and more with CPM Equine and Livestock Removal. For more than 18 years, we’ve been committed to helping horse owners, veterinarians, and equine boarding facilities deal with the sad logistics when a horse dies.
We make it a point to be respectful of both the situation and the schedule within your facility. We’ll transport the horse to the location of your choice and, if you need help finding a facility that fits your needs, we can make a number of recommendations. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact us online or by phone today.
