Miniature Horses Cleared For Take Off As Service Animals

 

(CBS Local) — Miniature horses are among the service animals approved to take on flights, according to new guidelines provided Thursday by the federal government.

Service animals on planes has been the subject of much debate over the past several years, especially when the animal is a little exotic. To curb some of the debate, the U.S. Department of Transportation clarified which common service animals should almost always be allowed.

“With respect to animal species, we indicated that we would focus our enforcement efforts on ensuring that the most commonly used service animals (dogs, cats, and miniature horses) are accepted for transport as service animals,” the department said in a statement

Good lord they must have to wear a shit bag or else they will never get the plane clean. Can you imagine being on a long flight and one of these takes a massive shit?

Bad enough when you have to sit next to some fat POS, now you have to put up with his fucking horse too? If you need a horse for a service animal, you should just be exterminated.

So this announcement basically conflated "Service animal" with "Emotional support animal" or "Therapy" in this case to obfuscate the distinction as the pc nutbars are want to do these days.

Yeah fuck this industry entirely right now.

Can you housebreak a horse?

 

More importantly, can I bring my service llama on the plane now?

The miniature horse is weird, but their smart and can be trained. What the fuck good is a cat as service animal? The fucking things are a terrible travel companion. I took the girlfriends cat to the vet once and it did that annoying meow cats do when they’re scared the entire ride and shit and pissed in the box it was being carried in.

I almost bought a mini-horse and some ponies a couple years ago. Ended up passing because of my travel schedule.
