Where can you borrow a deceased horse?
Sorry if my title sounds little disturbing, but anyone knows where I could borrow a dead horse for an art project?

You could contact your local veterinary hospital, but most deceased horses are either buried or cremated right away. They pose a health hazard otherwise.

I can't imagine what kind of 'art' would require a dead animal, unless it's taxidermy.

I'm actually confused as to what you would need a dead horse for. Care to share?

Joe4d 01-09-2013 07:33 AM

and once you got the dead horse, I dont think people would want it back.

Weird, How do you borrow? and how would you haul it to and fro?

A dead horse is not something anyone is going to have just lying around (well, come to think of it, it would be lying around, lol), this is completely odd.

If you live near a vet school or vet tech training program, they often have many animals available for study and may be willing to assist you.

We used to get bones from a local slaughter yard in the UK for still life drawing so is that what you mean?
A lot of Vet Training Centres/Universities will euthanise unwanted horses to use in teaching so I'd try them first

Are you needing an entire, intact, horse or just parts?

Jin 01-09-2013 04:27 PM

Oh no no no, I don't want it in parts!! I don't think I could stomach that. Me and my art buddies at uni require a big size adult (preferably a mare). We intend to imitate a certain upside down horse statue by artist David Cerny. Google it.

I appreciate not many owners will allow this, and I don't blame them. But me and pals don't know where to go and ask. We would pay for the borrowing. By the way, I'm from UK.
