Regrettably, neighbors tell me the owner wasn't a champ at caring for his horses. But given the placement of most of them, they have to at least move to somewhere else on the property to be buried/Nature's course.

I'd want to move them too.

Maybe a vet school would want some of the skulls & bones? Or a farrier - leg bones?

I was thinking the same thing. I know of 1 fully intact skeleton I could easily donate to the local university, and anything else I find just... Get rid of them. If they weren't so close to the barn/main house, I wouldn't fuss so much.

I would ask what these horses or animal died of if you bring your horses there than you should know other wise just put the bone in the wood and say a prayer

Better check for monsters under the bed as well;)
