Subject:
How much room for a dead horse? Not OT

Gary Evans Tallassee, TN
>Yesterday my sister-in-law's Yorkshire Terrier, Maxwell, passed away after a fairly long life.

I volunteered to take him to the local crematorium. I was surprised to find out that this guy does over 130 animal cremations a month, including a number of horses and cows, whose owners want to keep the ashes.

The upshot is that I have an agreement to provide 5 urns from different woods and in different sizes. I have a pretty good idea of the volumes that would be required for various sized dogs and cats, but I don't have a clue as to how much volume it takes for the ashes of a horse or cow. I could just call the guy back to find out, but this seemed to be a lot more fun. 8^]

Also, is the correct term, "Funerary urn?"
