    Service miniature horse for PTSD? Do you work with horses for emotional support or can you provide insight?

    ...One of the reasons that ISN’T mine? (My cousin is a large animal vet, and I’m utterly shameless). That anyone considering getting a miniature horse -for any reason, much less as a working horse- should be aware of? ...Cost effective is a laugh. Equine vet bills are easily 10x higher than...

    News Us politics - read first post before comment

    Both already illegal and neither exist in ADA law. The ADA recognizes dogs and miniature horses ONLY. I have heard of a few states allowing a service cat but that is very controversial and I am not sure if those laws would hold if that person had an issue. ESAs are different and can be any...
