Richard Logan has more than 20 years experience driving diggers for contract work. He began burying animals over ten years ago, when he had to bury his wife's horse and found that there was a need for such a service.

"I always try to get there on the same day, as there's usually a lot of emotion," says Richard. This means that he is on call seven days a week.

Richard works with the local vets in the area. "If an animal has been sick for a while and the owner has made arrangements with the vet to have it put down, then I'll be there at that time. However, when the death is unexpected, that's when you have to be available at any time."

While he primarily deals with horses or cattle, Richard has buried just about everything. Using a three tonne digger, the job can take up to an hour. "You try to make a nice, neat job, because of the emotion involved for the owner.

It's not all doom and gloom though, as Richard has also been called in to rescue live animals from drains, tomos and ditches, for people who have not got their own tractors.
"For me, it's important that my clients know I will be there when they need me and that I'll do a good job for them."

Richard also has a 15-tonne digger for general farm maintenance, drain cleaning etc.
