Cork on Fork: In all seriousness, if you are blind I could care less what kind of animal you use to navigate the world. I couldn't imagine getting through the day without being able to see. If a mini-horse enables you to leave the house and live your life, I have no no business being annoyed if I have to share space with it.

Benjimin_Dover: all must be allowed even full size horses, cows...

I would imagine that a full size horse or cow would be useless because they aren't small enough to navigate inside a store or building, nor could you get in a vehicle with them.

If this thread is anything like the other eleventy threads about this topic, soon we will also be told that people also do not get to decide what animals are allowed to be service animals based upon what somebody else decides is the relative "usefulness" of any specific service animal choice of the handicapped individual. If a handicapped person wants a full size horse for one and it won't fit in a vehicle then they can either ride it to the store or transport it in any number of various vehicles designed and sold for that purpose. Once entering the store, the management must allow it and STFU.

My sister has a few of these... Not ones actually trained to be service animals. She just has some miniature horses. I recently got to walk one of them in a parade she and her ranch were involved in. Let me tell you, the mini horses were the BIG HIT of the parade. Everyone, from children to the elderly, couldn't help themselves. They all wanted to pet the mini horse. EVERYONE wanted to put their hands all over the poor thing. I was actually quite impressed at how the thing handled all the attention. The horse I was walking kept a cool composure the whole time, never spooked or kicked or snapped.

I prefer my version...

Blind and you don't like dogs? Sucks to be you.

Seriously, don't be so farkin' picky. Dogs are cool.

I bet it would be great as long as you only needed to go about 5 feet and then could wait in that spot for about 2 hours while the cat slept.
