Not sure if this is the right place but here is a pic of the Caissons that I volunteer with in SC. It is from a funeral that we did for the Sheriff of Orangeberg County last week.

I don't think it's disrespectful at all, if anything it's honoring the dead.

Um, not to bring it up again! But I'm sure that as a Sheriff he saw PLENTY of pictures of the deceased! Beautiful Percherons! Thank you for theirs and your service!

Treat every moment of every day as though it may be your last.

Well if some of you find it disrespectful I must inform you that the local paper has the same pictures and more of this on the website and in the local newspaper. I posted it to show what we do and to show the horses. It also shows how we pay respect to those that serve, law enforcement and military.
To those of you who commented and understand, thanks.....

I think its a very classy picture to post actually.

Maybe if it was an open casket picture or something, that would be disrespectful and without class.

Beautiful horses and I would love to be honored this way at my funeral.
