Yes that is so sad. He was not only her horse, he was a companion and a partner in her equestrienne activities. Zara must be devastated. This has been a very sad eight months for her (and for Mike.)

As an animal lover, just awful, over here we usually cremate (in cities) or bury (in the country) our animal companions, but I dont know any horse owners, serious question, do they do anything like that for horses?

Here in Australia horse companions are sometimes buried on their owners' country property. I believe there are excavated horses, chariots and warriors from ancient times in large numbers in places like China, and Saxon and Viking warriors have been found buried next to each other in grave sites.

I believe there is a wellknown park near Lexington in Kentucky in which lots of famous race horses were buried, and the great Seabiscuit is buried at another place.

 Here in Australia our country's most famous racehorse Phar Lap (or 'Big Red') raced in the late 1920's and through the Depression years, carrying the hopes of millions of small time punters and rarely letting them down. He raced in our most famous race, the Melbourne Cup, but went over to the US to race and died there under mysterious circumstances. His death made headlines all over Australia and for years people said 'The Yanks killed him'.

He was taxidermied after death. His huge heart was sent to New Zealand where he was bred, but to this day the rest of Phar Lap, (stuffed) is in a large case at the Melbourne Museum here, well known to generations of Aussie school children.
