How can we turn a hireling into a horse?

Isn't there a sculpt corpse kind of spell? If so, would resurrecting him give him permanent equininity?

I think you're on the right track, but this sounds less like a question of game mechanics than it does a question of whether or not your co-worker needs professional help. :-)

I'm assuming that the hireling is willing, that the change is transmutation in nature (as opposed to an illusion), and that money is no option.
  • Hireling gets to Druid 2 to Wild Shape into a Draft Horse/Riding Horse, and a PC arcanist uses Minor Illusion to fashion a human head. The hireling becomes an actual horse, but the head is illusory.
  • The PCs find an NPC Wizard who will be willing to do the required transformation. It will be crazy expensive, I expect, maybe too expensive for a 3rd-level party. A cooperative DM might still make it work, though. For example, the NPC might be willing to perform the ritual in exchange for the party accomplishing a particular quest.
