if a horse gets sick i can look to make sure my horse don't get it
2/9/2009 11:24:50 PM
ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! A law like that will only excerbate the unwanted horse problem.
2/9/2009 10:32:03 PM
Another way to tax us.
2/9/2009 9:02:00 PM
identification for lost horses
2/9/2009 7:19:45 PM
We already have too much governmental interference in our daily lives.
2/9/2009 6:34:41 PM
people that keep horses should be made to give them shelter from adverse weather conditions
2/9/2009 6:05:33 PM
Req. govt monitoring,fees,etc. more gov. less freedom. Period.
2/9/2009 5:22:01 PM
too expensive for breeders, recordkeeping nightmare
2/9/2009 4:09:51 PM
It still won't stop those people who are just plain bad horse owners and it "taxes" the good ones.
2/9/2009 3:49:57 PM
To track lost OTTBs
2/9/2009 3:43:07 PM
it will mean less horses are stolen
2/9/2009 3:42:45 PM
2/9/2009 3:42:22 PM
so when they are stolen you can use it as a secondary look
2/9/2009 3:17:01 PM
Too much government intervention in my life as it is.
2/9/2009 3:05:25 PM
In mainland Europe, my horse is already micrchipped and pasported. That's enough.
2/9/2009 3:03:55 PM
A brand or microchip should be sufficient
2/9/2009 2:54:31 PM
It is just another expense that will not help the recognition of stolen horses.
2/9/2009 2:45:30 PM
THEY ARE STILL LIVESTOCK IN MY BOOK
2/9/2009 2:41:30 PM
I'm tired of government oversight and intrusion into our lives.
2/9/2009 12:42:10 PM
It's just a money-maker for the municipalities. Good photos or physical markers are as good/better.
2/9/2009 12:18:38 PM
Maybe on rabies vaccination with tags for horses, like cats & dogs.
2/9/2009 11:44:17 AM
will slow the back yard & other breeders from producing inferior & genetically poor horses
2/9/2009 10:58:49 AM
our goverment is too BIg already
2/9/2009 10:51:45 AM
Just another way for the government to track everyone. Invasion of privacy.
2/9/2009 10:06:27 AM
We already do enough with registering horses, don't need more paperwork.
2/9/2009 9:26:26 AM
Not a government issue,to much big brother act
2/9/2009 8:43:34 AM
slippery slope. Slaughter horses need tracking as transfer & transport safe guard
2/9/2009 5:00:09 AM
im a professional in the equine field, too many people are ignorant about basic equine care
2/9/2009 1:25:25 AM
My breed of horses ( Friesian) are required to be microchiped already.
2/8/2009 9:20:19 PM
The goverment does not need to know any more about my life than they do now
2/8/2009 9:09:31 PM
just another useless tax and invasion of privacy.
2/8/2009 7:21:58 PM
To much government control is asking for trouble.
2/8/2009 4:41:47 PM
my business only
2/8/2009 3:09:35 PM
because its yours
2/8/2009 2:52:56 PM
Another way for government to control our private affairs. Cannot see any real benefit .
2/8/2009 2:45:41 PM
Takes away more of my rights as an individual
2/8/2009 2:27:47 PM
What is horse licensing?
2/8/2009 2:10:08 PM
Need more information
2/8/2009 1:37:41 PM
That is what brands are for.
2/8/2009 12:39:03 PM
another useless expensive beaurocracy
2/8/2009 12:19:28 PM
just an extra hassle
2/8/2009 11:53:27 AM
more fees, more taxes.....they are livestock, more regulations, absolutely no licensing,
2/8/2009 11:34:45 AM
We already have mandatory EIA testing in our state if we want to move a horse off the property.
2/8/2009 9:17:08 AM
Just one more thing to do, although I support microchipping and rabies shots
2/8/2009 9:14:57 AM
More government does not equal better lives for human or animal.
2/8/2009 9:05:11 AM
need to maintain induvidual rights.
2/8/2009 8:17:57 AM
this will aid in tracking horses, be it lost, stolen, sold or ill, and their offspring
2/8/2009 8:01:50 AM
Licensing will simply provide another government intrusion. Microchipping would be more appropriate.
2/8/2009 5:50:53 AM
I have over 70 head of horses, That's all I need is more expenditure for something needless.
2/8/2009 3:30:52 AM
I think something more like $10 for non-breeding stock and 25 - 50 for breeding stock is a good idea
2/8/2009 3:00:55 AM
It sounds way too complicated to me!!! What about the horse dealers? Auctions?
2/7/2009 11:17:38 PM
for safety if horse gets out , stolen, or lost
2/7/2009 7:45:31 PM
Too many licenses already
2/7/2009 6:56:55 PM
This country was founded on freedom, not communistic govermental rule.
2/7/2009 4:49:36 PM
my horse is microchipped for safety & ID
2/7/2009 4:01:34 PM
To what end and to whose benefit?
2/7/2009 3:01:28 PM
this is for horses and horse owners. Other animals should have their own site.
2/7/2009 2:42:50 PM
Az used to have hauling papers, we need something.
2/7/2009 2:42:11 PM
idk i am a kid
2/7/2009 2:31:00 PM
2/7/2009 10:31:57 AM
A rezounding NO!
2/7/2009 10:21:36 AM
Just adding more red tape - I think we have enough of it elsewhere in our lives.
2/7/2009 10:12:50 AM
I'm sick of our govt. needing to know every move we make in our lives.
2/7/2009 10:06:18 AM
no more gov't interference
2/7/2009 8:52:50 AM
It will encourage owners to be more responsible.
2/7/2009 8:51:23 AM
to much like big brother
2/7/2009 7:43:47 AM
a good way to make theft difficult
2/7/2009 12:18:50 AM
Just another way picking our pockets
2/6/2009 11:11:33 PM
I don't see the need - it's just one more expense.
2/6/2009 10:12:07 PM
Because I do not want the government having control over, ie, how many allowed on a property.
2/6/2009 9:50:05 PM
would this really help if the horse were stolen? prob not
2/6/2009 8:05:51 PM
I love Horses and I Think They Should Be Able To Use a Horse License as Long as it has Identificatio
2/6/2009 6:37:06 PM
where would they wear the license?
2/6/2009 6:22:08 PM
No real reason for it
2/6/2009 5:44:29 PM
I think that people need to responsible owners and keep track of their livestock .
2/6/2009 3:54:27 PM
Cost. ID can be done with branding, tatooing.
2/6/2009 3:44:25 PM
this will not solve any horse theft and it will also add to the strain of the horse comminity
2/6/2009 3:41:56 PM
Not as it was written in NH (cost too high). I am not opposed to the NAIS tracking system
2/6/2009 3:05:13 PM
Horses that have numbered brands do it, why not all horses in some way? Microchips?
2/6/2009 2:38:30 PM
In FL, where animal control is gestapo, it would be used against owners... and the funds wasted.
2/6/2009 1:46:03 PM
this country already has too much "Big Brother" intrusion.
2/6/2009 1:42:57 PM
I hope it will discourage overbreeding
2/6/2009 1:34:49 PM
a cogginsshould be sufficent
2/6/2009 1:27:47 PM
makes theft & insurance fraud more difficult
2/6/2009 1:13:33 PM
Cost and too much government intervention
2/6/2009 1:01:58 PM
As it is my horses are registered with USEA, USEF, & USHJA already. I don't need another organizat
2/6/2009 12:55:58 PM
We don't need government oversight!
2/6/2009 12:20:40 PM
It smacks of big brother
2/6/2009 12:19:29 PM
This plan will be costly if you have a lot of horses. Leave it to individual owners.
2/6/2009 11:58:41 AM
There are enough rules and paperwork in life already. Theft is relatively rare.
2/6/2009 11:57:52 AM
2/6/2009 11:50:50 AM
we have enough expenses all ready. i
2/6/2009 11:08:45 AM
would consider microchipping for one-time identification; licensing=expensive beaurocratic nightmare
2/6/2009 11:01:22 AM
Only if it helps locate a missing or stolen horse; NOT to be used as a purpose for taxation
2/6/2009 10:58:32 AM
does depend on the fee. is it going to be once a year or life time of the horse/owner?
2/6/2009 10:55:06 AM
licensing is just another big brother way to overregulate us and provide an additional tax base
2/6/2009 10:27:18 AM
Gee, charge us more money while some can't even affored hay to feed - *headdesk*
2/6/2009 9:17:06 AM
Just another way for government to be involved in what is someones private rights!
2/6/2009 9:13:25 AM
most dogs arn't even licenced, this is an outrage
2/6/2009 8:57:07 AM
it is an added expense that doesn't identify a lost , missing or stolen horse, just adds revenue
2/6/2009 8:55:11 AM
That's why we have microchips.
2/6/2009 8:14:10 AM
This just gives the goverment more info to apply more taxes
2/6/2009 7:24:07 AM
Aren't we taxed enough?
2/6/2009 7:05:48 AM
Get the government OUT of our business!They only mess things up
2/6/2009 5:49:33 AM
no need for government involvement
2/6/2009 5:09:32 AM
No ones damn business!
2/6/2009 2:57:55 AM
licensure is not a sure deterent of theft; perhaps microchipping or DNA analysis can work
2/6/2009 2:06:52 AM
It's just a way for municipalities to make money. I can't imagine having to license my brood mares.
2/6/2009 12:16:56 AM
Already have measures in place for disease control plus the cost to the owners is way too much!!!
2/5/2009 11:14:50 PM
Horses are and have been considered livestock. This will be unmanageable.
2/5/2009 11:07:41 PM
i do not want gov't telling me what i can or can't do with my horse. big brother!
2/5/2009 10:52:52 PM
I am tired of everyone wanting to know everything and next they will tell me when and how often use.
2/5/2009 10:34:37 PM
If someone where there to enforce it.
2/5/2009 9:48:57 PM
WE ARE TAXED ENOUGH FOR EVERY THING WE DO
2/5/2009 9:44:38 PM
Yes! Put the money back into rescue facilities.
2/5/2009 9:39:28 PM
it would be more government intrution into private ownership
2/5/2009 9:21:23 PM
It is just another way for the government to get into our business
2/5/2009 9:14:23 PM
youhave a license to dry a car yet anyone with no knowledge of the animal can own and ride a horse c
2/5/2009 8:57:38 PM
We have cogginspapers and mocrochips, freeze brands etc to identify
2/5/2009 8:44:05 PM
Not convinced it would be managed properly nor there would be much benefit.
2/5/2009 8:42:33 PM
Government has no business counting or monitoring my horses
2/5/2009 8:07:04 PM
expensive for multiple horse owners
2/5/2009 7:28:30 PM
It's just the gov trying to get into the taxpayer's pockets again. Totally unnecessary.
2/5/2009 6:51:16 PM
absolutely not. It's just a waste of government money. They don't need to track horses.
2/5/2009 6:45:08 PM
I don't want to be spending any more money!
2/5/2009 6:41:11 PM
Not needed. Will drive many hobby horse folks out of horses.
2/5/2009 6:28:00 PM
It's another bill.
2/5/2009 6:13:19 PM
Don't mandate horse licensing. It's Big Brother. If someone wants to chip or brand, then that's fine
2/5/2009 6:10:03 PM
Too many horses are ending up at auctions w.o papers and loosing their identities.
2/5/2009 5:51:55 PM
I don't I do believe in free classes or clinics on horseownership for the public interested.
2/5/2009 5:49:56 PM
What purpose would it serve?
2/5/2009 5:43:36 PM
I don't need BIG BROTHER involved in my horse business or finding another way to TAX me
2/5/2009 5:39:31 PM
Absolutely not! This will give the government another way to track, tax and control your animals!!
2/5/2009 5:18:34 PM
basically it would just be another tax
2/5/2009 5:06:21 PM
for people that buy and sell it would be a nightmare
2/5/2009 4:49:50 PM
there would be no benefit-just extra expense for govt misuse of funds
2/5/2009 4:21:18 PM
For health tracking and curbing indiscriminate breeding, it's a good idea.
2/5/2009 3:40:40 PM
to help prevent horse theft
2/5/2009 3:30:03 PM
IfIcan't take czre of it, I don't buy it
2/5/2009 3:00:35 PM
It would be much too expensive to those of us with multiple animals
2/5/2009 1:56:00 PM
HSUS is an animal rights lobbying agency
2/5/2009 1:37:26 PM
ITS JUST ANOTHER COST THAT THE HORSE INDUSTRY DOENST NEED!!! PEOPLE ALREADY CANT AFFORD HORSES
2/5/2009 1:33:32 PM
it would replace carring the pass port, and would prove owner ship, age ect.
2/5/2009 11:41:36 AM
the is some great horses out there and i feel it would keep them from getting stolen.
2/5/2009 11:31:51 AM
Then there is less horses being taken and sold
2/5/2009 11:23:28 AM
Just what we need, more government in our lives. Dishonest people will always find a way around
2/5/2009 11:19:59 AM
Someone will decide to charge for this just like licensing your dog.
2/5/2009 11:15:33 AM
vet records, eg.
2/5/2009 11:05:10 AM
What was in it for Skinder?
2/5/2009 10:54:39 AM
in many states there is no way to track a horse's ownership.
2/5/2009 10:34:32 AM
If people can't identify their own animals, they shouldn't have them.
2/5/2009 10:34:28 AM
NOT if it involves being classified as a "companion animal" and getting PETA involved.
2/5/2009 10:18:10 AM
For identification I can CHOOSE on my own to microchip without having another gov agency involved
2/5/2009 9:54:49 AM
more fee's for something not necessary
2/5/2009 8:14:44 AM
its more expensive in the U.K we still pay for a license for our horses
2/5/2009 7:30:42 AM
oyr horses are branded
2/5/2009 7:10:21 AM
I feel horse licensing should be voluntary, requiring it is just more government red tape
2/5/2009 12:54:59 AM
Only if it is like a microchip. Must be permanent-transferable
2/5/2009 12:40:51 AM
it makes it easier when tracing history on these horses
2/5/2009 12:17:43 AM
THIS WILL LEAD TO DECLARING A VALUE OF THE HORSE TO THE GOVERMENT AND THEN BIG TAXES WILL FOLLOW
2/5/2009 12:06:02 AM
The givt screws up every freedom it touches.
2/4/2009 11:32:43 PM
2/4/2009 11:21:49 PM
How much more is it going to cost to own a horse?
2/4/2009 11:14:40 PM
Big Brother is intrusive enough already, thank you. I don't need the gov't deeper in my pockets.
2/4/2009 10:51:01 PM
horses have other means of ID- brands, tattoos, chips
2/4/2009 10:44:04 PM
good for horses that are not breed registered
2/4/2009 10:18:38 PM
If you can't afford to vaccinate and license your horse, you don't need it.
2/4/2009 9:58:19 PM
Our horses are registered by AQHA, don't need another gov. regulation and fee to pay
2/4/2009 9:51:34 PM
Mine are chipped, but maybe licensing would stop irresponsible breeding
2/4/2009 8:48:37 PM
It would only effect horse breeders..and they should be more careful about creating unwanted horses
2/4/2009 8:39:40 PM
Licensing is just another useless expense.
2/4/2009 8:05:37 PM
My horses are registered with pictures to identify them. They are paints, no2alike!PlusLESS govmt.
2/4/2009 7:58:45 PM
I'm sure the government will find a way to tax licensed horses too.
2/4/2009 7:54:32 PM
I don't feel it's necessary. Plus it's never as inexpensive of an idea as the politicians say it is
2/4/2009 7:25:09 PM
I don't think compliance will be high, ergo not effective
2/4/2009 7:18:18 PM
NO because its not about ID - its money, control & regulation
2/4/2009 7:13:48 PM
Another expense and Gov. telling me what to do with my animals.
2/4/2009 7:02:03 PM
2/4/2009 6:56:52 PM
2/4/2009 6:53:16 PM
We don't need government involved in our lives anymore than they already are.
2/4/2009 6:49:45 PM
government already controls too much
2/4/2009 6:28:11 PM
Need more info.
2/4/2009 6:20:11 PM
Sounds good, but might be expensive to administer.
2/4/2009 6:07:26 PM
just what horsepeople, more incompentent government bureaucrats sticking their noses in our business
2/4/2009 5:06:42 PM
financial impact on multiple horse owners
2/4/2009 4:48:58 PM
A ploy by government factions in order to be able to 'tax' horses - at least here in Australia -
2/4/2009 4:41:04 PM
too much government!
2/4/2009 4:37:36 PM
I aggree with state legislature. but need some way to track unregistered horses.
2/4/2009 4:32:08 PM
Interesting idea, but more specifics needed to form an opinion.
2/4/2009 4:24:23 PM
too much government control already
2/4/2009 4:03:57 PM
I can't afford to pay anymore than I do!!!
2/4/2009 3:59:36 PM
It's one more hit in horse owners' pocketbooks and is worthless.
2/4/2009 3:58:13 PM
It is not a matter of identifying the horse you could put that license on a horse just like the o
2/4/2009 3:57:47 PM
NO. We don't need yet another layer of government
2/4/2009 3:52:18 PM
Just another Goverment thing to "Run A Muck"
2/4/2009 3:47:58 PM
Another bureaucratic boondoogle
2/4/2009 3:37:37 PM
sounds like another scheme to make money, just like always
2/4/2009 3:27:30 PM
if you cannot afford an extra $25, you cannot afford a horse!
2/4/2009 3:26:46 PM
Aside from the costs of the program, don't we have enough government in our lives? Good grief!
2/4/2009 3:24:03 PM
Horses are expensive enough, I don't see the purpose for it
2/4/2009 3:21:23 PM
No, for example Friesians are chipped at the Keuring, and other states require a brand inspection,
2/4/2009 3:20:50 PM
2/4/2009 3:19:31 PM
because it's no one's business but my own. Too close to NAIS for me. Big Brother????
2/4/2009 3:12:10 PM
Why license when microchipping is available? More added expense on foster care
2/4/2009 3:08:06 PM
Horses are livestock, not dogs! It would be catastrophic to the business will all this would entail
2/4/2009 3:07:53 PM
As in dog licensing, the funds should be returned for equine welfare or related needs.
2/4/2009 2:57:40 PM
taxes = waste of MY money
2/4/2009 2:55:13 PM
Only if it is an implanted GPS locator chip. Otherwise, don't bother.
2/4/2009 2:54:55 PM
microchipping is better
2/4/2009 2:49:36 PM
As a one time thing. Not a license that needs to be renewed each year. Only when ownership changes.
2/4/2009 2:43:20 PM
If I choose to ID my horse, I will use microchips, not be forced into an ID system
2/4/2009 2:42:14 PM
it should ONLY be done by choice
2/4/2009 2:41:49 PM
Maybe in such a way, that not every horse has to have one, just a select few...
2/4/2009 2:38:22 PM
it wont serve the horses and the people that truely care for them.
2/4/2009 2:26:31 PM
would be too burdensome financially
2/4/2009 2:25:02 PM
2/4/2009 2:21:56 PM
Another waste of time and money for a horse owner.
2/4/2009 2:16:36 PM
new hampshire tried to pass this, it will put stables out of business
2/4/2009 2:11:47 PM
just one step closer to communism
2/4/2009 2:10:24 PM
I think freeze branding may be best. Brands have saved many a horse at the stockyards & junk sales..
2/4/2009 2:06:50 PM
Depends on the price tag and who benefits from it
2/4/2009 1:59:32 PM
Big brother - another USDA plot!
2/4/2009 1:57:01 PM
I feel my current coggins shows identification. We do not need to spend money on horse licensing.
2/4/2009 1:54:53 PM
thats just one more way for the government to control us and to get more money from us
2/4/2009 1:42:46 PM
It's just another useless government money sucking scam, just like the NAIS.
2/4/2009 1:40:18 PM
another way for the government to make money
2/4/2009 1:31:00 PM
It's just another "fee" and I see zero benefit as those that SHOULD license wouldn't
2/4/2009 1:25:13 PM
What I own is none of the governments concern
2/4/2009 1:24:59 PM
Any money used to pay the state for the license is better spent on the horse.
2/4/2009 12:45:21 PM
Federal Horse ID that can track movement,lists ID#,EIA - test,rabies cert for travel on Fed/State Rd
2/4/2009 12:30:13 PM
too much opportunity for lost privacy/interference/abuse/unwanted market campaigns
2/4/2009 12:23:36 PM
tax...and people are having enough trouble finacially keeping horses. Let's license all animals then
2/4/2009 12:18:48 PM
We already have enough government in our lives!
2/4/2009 12:17:46 PM
I don't want the government running my life, how about you
2/4/2009 12:02:17 PM
I'm assuming it would require minimum vaccinations to get licenses. If not, then no.
2/4/2009 11:59:19 AM
I'm not happy with the Nais idea and I feel this is about the same consiept. I feel I can mico chip
2/4/2009 11:46:32 AM
Brands, chips, take a picture once a year, staple and file
2/4/2009 11:24:46 AM
Just another way of taxing people.
2/4/2009 11:21:31 AM
I would help in finding owners in abuse cases, and maybe save some from slaughter.Maybe microchip.
2/4/2009 11:21:30 AM
You have to have license's or permits you have to purchase for everything you have or do now.
2/4/2009 11:11:14 AM
But not @ the $25 per horse rate - for multiple horses, that is too much
2/4/2009 10:45:29 AM
In order to help prevent the spread of diseases via license tracking
2/4/2009 10:44:43 AM
NAIS is stealing our rights through intimidation and lies.
2/4/2009 10:39:25 AM
2/4/2009 10:30:11 AM
I believe additional costs for a license is unecessary and doesn't help feed/care costs.
2/4/2009 10:08:37 AM
we are already taxed too much
2/4/2009 10:04:15 AM
We have too much gov't regulation now, and it will stifle the industry.
2/4/2009 10:03:38 AM
because they will want to tax you and we pay enought taxes on feed etc
2/4/2009 10:02:08 AM
The cost will just make that many more horses get less feed w/ this economy. & these aren't dogs/cat
2/4/2009 10:00:14 AM
absolutely not! another way to tax us & limit our movements
2/4/2009 9:59:32 AM
another way for government to control people
2/4/2009 9:57:09 AM
Better to require breeders to have licenses, to reduce so many throw-away foals.
2/4/2009 9:52:39 AM
one more unnecessary expense
2/4/2009 9:49:59 AM
how about chiping like they do in dogs that way you can make sure the horse you have is correct
2/4/2009 9:40:04 AM
It's one more piece of government interference that complicates life, and is basically unecessary.
2/4/2009 9:23:48 AM
Invasion of privavcy; just another expense for the government to misuse; I can identify my own!
2/4/2009 9:17:32 AM
There is enough government control now! Plus it is an unnecessary expense to owners!!!!
2/4/2009 9:16:46 AM
cattle,hogs,goats,rabbits will be next
2/4/2009 9:15:48 AM
brand inspections/health certificates should be enough. This is too big brother, and invades privacy
2/4/2009 9:15:27 AM
opens the door to tax on animals as is now happenig with cows etc.
2/4/2009 9:10:25 AM
I have my horses microchipped
2/4/2009 8:57:31 AM
Only the honest would pay and the others leave trouble for their barn managers
2/4/2009 8:53:48 AM
need to know more about it
2/4/2009 8:25:06 AM
No, in Massachusetts, many towns already tax our horses so licensing on top of that is ridiculous.
2/4/2009 8:23:33 AM
Can't afford any more money to be put out for our horses.
2/4/2009 8:22:33 AM
Do not need government in our personal business any more than they already are
Being on a tight budget due to the economy, my family and I are having a financial struggle just to
2/4/2009 8:21:01 AM
We already have forms of ID
2/4/2009 8:06:56 AM
Can't see any reason for it, just another way for govt to squeeze more money out of people
2/4/2009 8:05:13 AM
keep government out of my business
2/4/2009 7:50:26 AM
I all ready have all my horses microchiped.
2/4/2009 7:30:56 AM
All my horses are already registered with their respective breed registries. So why license them?
2/4/2009 7:28:10 AM
Its just another way for taxes to be imposed later on .
2/4/2009 7:18:11 AM
absolutely not, the economy is bad enough, just one more thing to worry about affording!
2/4/2009 7:16:38 AM
biased question-don't know how ids stolen horse
2/4/2009 7:06:11 AM
Don't need more government control.
2/4/2009 6:42:08 AM
Too much regulation of individuals now!
2/4/2009 6:23:47 AM
For food animals-horses are recreational. Too restrictive, if you mean NAIS..
2/4/2009 5:54:48 AM
This is just another means of government manipulation and control.
2/4/2009 3:49:25 AM
Potential for abuse of security
2/4/2009 3:45:22 AM
2/4/2009 2:27:15 AM
as in where I live, there are still horse thieves. this would stop that with positive ids.
2/4/2009 2:16:21 AM
Because we are being taxed and regulated to death! I can freeze brand my horse for security.
2/4/2009 1:45:40 AM
but not at any but a very small cost.
2/4/2009 1:43:39 AM
to help prevent cruelty and promote responsibility
2/4/2009 1:36:49 AM
Isnt that what a brand inspection is for all practical purposes?
2/4/2009 1:25:34 AM
We already have too much govt. control
2/4/2009 1:17:30 AM
No more givernment taxing, filing reports on movement, etc.
2/4/2009 1:06:39 AM
Prefer to keep the government out of it.
2/4/2009 12:59:16 AM
is it going to cost?
2/4/2009 12:12:36 AM
license = tax=restrictions
2/4/2009 12:12:35 AM
Totally rediculous! Horses rn't domesticated pets. Mine R ID Chipped & regstrd & thats it!
2/4/2009 12:01:51 AM
What's next - cattle, pigs, chickens, etc.?
2/3/2009 11:45:26 PM
i don't think think it would help
2/3/2009 11:39:49 PM
HELL NO! ANYTHING FOR ANOTHER BUCK..IM RUNING OUT OF BUCKS.. LIKE ALOT OF OTHERS...
2/3/2009 11:39:36 PM
first costs are up enough now with horses we don't need another. I also believe it will cost more h
2/3/2009 11:39:24 PM
We don't need anymore government control in our life.
2/3/2009 11:37:37 PM
No I'm not in favour - it's just another tax grab.
2/3/2009 11:23:27 PM
Microchipping is a better form of ID
2/3/2009 11:00:52 PM
Doesn't work on dogs, doubt it would work on horses either. Maybe microchipping?
2/3/2009 10:53:43 PM
Nice for grade horses to know where they come from and what state.
2/3/2009 10:52:37 PM
That would be taking money away from food and other things that could be spent on taking careof them
2/3/2009 10:43:43 PM
If you can't afford the 75-100 for vaccine, vet, tag, how can you afford a horse?
2/3/2009 10:42:34 PM
Horses are not pets
2/3/2009 10:30:08 PM
Just a way to take our $$
2/3/2009 10:27:03 PM
Too expensive and not a good way to identify. Micro chip would be better.
2/3/2009 10:09:13 PM
I think it's an added expense that most people with the pleasure horse could not afford.
2/3/2009 10:07:15 PM
The money from licensing could help support horse causes.
2/3/2009 10:07:14 PM
Government oversight sure hasn't "fixed all our other problems, has it?
2/3/2009 10:02:07 PM
It would accomplish Nothing
2/3/2009 9:59:51 PM
I'd rather identify my horses privately thru branding or microchiping. Leave Gov. Out of it.
2/3/2009 9:57:44 PM
Additional fee's and more taxes
2/3/2009 9:55:08 PM
He!! NO, just more government interference
2/3/2009 9:47:14 PM
licensing is not needed for id. this is just another tax. there are a lot better ways to id animials
2/3/2009 9:36:48 PM
more gov. control, we do NOT need!
2/3/2009 9:35:38 PM
Absolutely NOT! This is one step closer to NAIS. We do not need any more government interference!
2/3/2009 9:34:28 PM
There are enough egulations, and mirochipping is an excellent way to identify.
2/3/2009 9:32:45 PM
Not only no, but He** no!
2/3/2009 9:28:38 PM
Dogs have to be licensed, why not horses?
2/3/2009 9:28:03 PM
the gov needs to stay out of my business.
2/3/2009 9:17:04 PM
2/3/2009 8:59:34 PM
Just another line item income and something for the state to manage
2/3/2009 8:57:01 PM
Too much government control and cost.
2/3/2009 8:54:35 PM
No, it gives the politicians money and control.
2/3/2009 8:52:53 PM
horses are already expensive enough, quit tacking on extra expenses!
2/3/2009 8:48:28 PM
OMG, they need to give it a rest.
2/3/2009 8:41:54 PM
just another way for the government to waste money. not that many horses run loose like dogs
2/3/2009 8:39:01 PM
it is another way for gov. to collect more money and monitor one more aspect of our lives.
2/3/2009 8:37:17 PM
lets not add more cost to owners
2/3/2009 8:37:08 PM
I've heard people don't like the idea, but they never say why
2/3/2009 8:29:11 PM
No, unless it's free
2/3/2009 8:28:29 PM
why don't we just start licensing our kids!!!!!!!
2/3/2009 8:26:34 PM
The FEDS don't need to know everything we do. This is just another form of Big Brother stufng pkts
2/3/2009 8:22:14 PM
My vet discourages rabies vac. All 4 of mine are AQHA or APHA reg. & thus identified .
2/3/2009 8:17:15 PM
Deter theft, deter animal hoarding, promote responsible ownership, enable disease tracking
2/3/2009 8:13:23 PM
Its just another government attempt to get int our wallets and lives.
2/3/2009 8:12:25 PM
Just more money for someone else to spend carelessly...
2/3/2009 8:10:04 PM
Another tax? Why?
2/3/2009 8:03:20 PM
i would rather see having to get a license intead of having to have my horses microchipped
2/3/2009 7:59:56 PM
there is too much government already. We don't need more of it.
2/3/2009 7:50:54 PM
All horses be microchipped IDs
2/3/2009 7:48:41 PM
Isn't necessary..plus outrageous cost!
2/3/2009 7:45:37 PM
Horses are not in the food chain and don't need a big brother organization keeping track of them
2/3/2009 7:43:42 PM
Where would you put the licence plate?
2/3/2009 7:43:04 PM
We definitely don't need more taxes or more expenses.
2/3/2009 7:40:19 PM
enough already. we pay for breed registration, association registration, sport registration, etc.
2/3/2009 7:38:59 PM
No need for Gov't oversight, nor is there funding to enforce it's provisions
2/3/2009 7:34:35 PM
The government has enough on their plate without taking from ours.
2/3/2009 7:30:28 PM
Watch out government will want to know all you are doing with your horse
2/3/2009 7:27:31 PM
I prefer freeze branding or the chip. Keep the Gov. out of it!
2/3/2009 7:27:12 PM
Licensing another way of taxing the horse owner, accomplishes nothing for the horse.
2/3/2009 7:21:52 PM
Microchipping of unregistered horses should be implemented; otherwise tattoo/brand/freeze-brand
2/3/2009 7:18:11 PM
2/3/2009 7:18:01 PM
Personally I'm not in favor of licensing of our pets
2/3/2009 7:17:37 PM
In CO. we have brand inspections that tells the ownership of the horse.
2/3/2009 7:16:59 PM
Why get govt. involved if only to use it as a stepping stone to more regulation and/or taxing?
2/3/2009 7:13:09 PM
The government doesn't need to stick their noses into another aspect of our lives.
2/3/2009 7:13:02 PM
Less regulations - in Europe I heard that a permit is required to wipe a horse's nose after a sneeze
2/3/2009 7:11:26 PM
No! Just plain NO!!!
2/3/2009 7:05:00 PM
I heard its going to cost alot
2/3/2009 6:59:51 PM
an intrusion of privacy
2/3/2009 6:57:45 PM
This is government going overboard. Most are struggling to keep our horses, we don't need more cost
2/3/2009 6:56:18 PM
2/3/2009 6:55:58 PM
this is my right to freedom - I don't need a license to complicate things.......
2/3/2009 6:55:28 PM
Yes licencing should stop stolen horses being re-sold for slaughter, also easier to find if stolen.
2/3/2009 6:50:42 PM
No. eventually, it will lead to another way to impose a tax
2/3/2009 6:44:35 PM
extra cost to owners and won't help in any other way! People just won't have it done. what changes?
2/3/2009 6:40:21 PM
NO! This is just a back-door to NAIS. NO!
2/3/2009 6:39:40 PM
Hopefully this would protect pets from ending up on a plate in France
2/3/2009 6:31:50 PM
the rabies shot could kill my horse
2/3/2009 6:31:10 PM
Just another waste of money in already hard times!
2/3/2009 6:30:47 PM
Before we can deal with the horses we have, we need to know how many there are. This will count them
2/3/2009 6:30:38 PM
Most people have pictures of registration papers to verify ownership.
2/3/2009 6:27:51 PM
2/3/2009 6:24:02 PM
is it going to be a way of taxing horses, like cars?
2/3/2009 6:22:58 PM
It verifies horse population, which helps verify population statistics for trail preservation.
2/3/2009 6:21:26 PM
Will turn into another tax or money maker and drain the horse owners pockets.
2/3/2009 6:18:10 PM
Too easily forged. Use microchips.
2/3/2009 6:16:20 PM
Just another layer of bureaucratic stuff that we will have to pay for, and what is the advantage to
2/3/2009 6:16:15 PM
Current over population and "the unwanted horse" are due in part because of lack of regulations.
2/3/2009 6:15:04 PM
Unnecessary, and just one more way for the government to tax us.
2/3/2009 6:13:32 PM
That's what we have registries for.
2/3/2009 6:11:55 PM
yes, with a minimum fee!
2/3/2009 6:10:39 PM
I believe that the gov't is already to intrusive.
2/3/2009 6:08:09 PM
The government knows enough of our business already.
2/3/2009 6:07:46 PM
Like NAIS, this is an intolerable invasion of privacy. Alternatives exist
2/3/2009 6:05:51 PM
Will end up being an added expense and hassle, ID can be accomplished personally much easier
2/3/2009 6:03:34 PM
Registering my horses is good enough
2/3/2009 6:01:56 PM
The less the government gets into my business the better.
2/3/2009 5:59:39 PM
Don't need the government sticking its nose in something it knows nothing about!
2/3/2009 5:53:18 PM
rather microchip and breed registries
2/3/2009 5:49:48 PM
The government is in too many things already
2/3/2009 5:48:02 PM
NO! It would just be another means for the government to charge fees!
2/3/2009 5:41:27 PM
Just another scam from the gov't to get license fees, and then control things.
2/3/2009 5:40:11 PM
first, horses are livestock, second - enough govt. already!
2/3/2009 5:34:58 PM
Absolutely NOT. Too much government already!
2/3/2009 5:33:09 PM
$5 per horse, no more & proof of rabies!
2/3/2009 5:31:37 PM
just another way to take money out of my pocket
2/3/2009 5:30:11 PM
Registration papers and brand inspections with photos are good enough.
2/3/2009 5:28:18 PM
NO and Heck No
2/3/2009 5:27:41 PM
NO,NO,NO! I do not believe the government has the right to license any animal.
2/3/2009 5:26:26 PM
I think it would put horse owners even more in a bind. The chip is available for identification.
2/3/2009 5:24:29 PM
I live in Nevada....we have a "brand" inspection for ownership....works pretty much like a license.
2/3/2009 5:23:49 PM
They are LIVESTOCK and not something you would need a license to own plus it would get expensive!!
2/3/2009 5:22:16 PM
Serves no purpose except to create extra cost for owners
2/3/2009 5:19:09 PM
Right because licensing clearly does so much for dogs.
2/3/2009 5:19:06 PM
Gives too much control too local/state government to assess fees and fines pursuant to enforcement.
2/3/2009 5:15:24 PM
invasion of privacy
2/3/2009 5:14:45 PM
It's rediculous, how often do horses need identifying?
2/3/2009 5:11:56 PM
No room for a tag on his butt
2/3/2009 5:08:17 PM
I think it's just a way for the government to collect more taxes
2/3/2009 5:07:47 PM
My horse is already registered, what would be the benifit of both registering and liscensing?
2/3/2009 5:06:52 PM
its okay if it could be kept affordable. Also not make sales complicated as to deter new owners.
2/3/2009 5:04:38 PM
More expense .
2/3/2009 5:02:25 PM
It's just one more government intervention, they have bigger things to worry about I think!
Just another way to get money out of people and increase legislation.
2/3/2009 5:02:01 PM
I'd have to research the pros & cons
2/3/2009 5:00:39 PM
Just another gov't cash grab
2/3/2009 4:56:35 PM
Too costly and too much trouble
2/3/2009 4:53:40 PM
Just ABSOLUTELY NOT
2/3/2009 4:53:32 PM
Just another tax from a cancerous, parasitic government!
2/3/2009 4:52:33 PM
NAIS is bad enough! Maybe some sort of voluntary passport system for horses that travel -shows, etc
2/3/2009 4:51:52 PM
License the owners instead.
2/3/2009 4:50:51 PM
i believe it would work as it does with dogs and encourage owner accountability, discourage theft.
2/3/2009 4:46:26 PM
Not all horses are registared and it would be easier to positively ident a stolen horse
2/3/2009 4:45:32 PM
Opens door to government control. UN is already looking at U.S. horses as food to be registered.
2/3/2009 4:44:46 PM
There isn't sufficient reasons to do so.
2/3/2009 4:43:51 PM
For their safety. I want my horses tracked and rescued if they're ever lost or stolen.
2/3/2009 4:43:20 PM
Still another government intrusion!
2/3/2009 4:40:30 PM
2/3/2009 4:37:56 PM
Horse liscensing is another venue to get revenue by cash strapped cities, counties or states.
2/3/2009 4:37:09 PM
Licensing is for tracking and taxing. Use branding or tattooing for ID.
2/3/2009 4:36:06 PM
I'd have to know more about it.
2/3/2009 4:32:33 PM
there is no good reason for it. Dog licesning is a waste of money in our state and horse licensing
2/3/2009 4:32:03 PM
invasion of my privacy
2/3/2009 4:31:41 PM
2/3/2009 4:30:10 PM
No No No- As a breeder it would be too costly.....Big Brother. No No No
NO-That would be a serious invasion of my privacy -- tattoo if you need to ID, don't regulate!
2/3/2009 4:27:27 PM
With licensing comes fees and we can use coggins papers for ID's
2/3/2009 4:25:23 PM
we can microchip and tattoo, this is just a money maker for the government
2/3/2009 4:24:22 PM
2/3/2009 4:23:26 PM
Just one more regulation that is totally unenforceable and unnecessary.
NO, Not enough space here to say why!!!!!!!
2/3/2009 4:23:10 PM
Coggins papers will do.
2/3/2009 4:20:19 PM
DUE TO THE EXPENSE
2/3/2009 4:19:35 PM
think I prefer microchipping/branding
2/3/2009 4:17:37 PM
just one more government interference
2/3/2009 4:15:30 PM
disease tracking made easier
2/3/2009 4:14:18 PM
Uncle Sam doesnt need his fingers in OUR pie, or tax us on anything else
2/3/2009 4:14:03 PM
As an industry the equine business is doing poorly why would they want to put more of a burden on ow
2/3/2009 4:12:25 PM
We don't need any more government interference/costs in the industry.
2/3/2009 4:11:37 PM
i own too many as i pack and have a working cow ranch

The best way to identify any animal is with a micro chip.
2/3/2009 4:11:22 PM
There are enough ways to identify your horse without the expense of licensure.
2/3/2009 4:11:17 PM
Info can be used for too many other applications. Too much "big brother " is watching.
2/3/2009 4:09:31 PM
The government would get more for the licenses, then what personal property taxes?
2/3/2009 4:09:07 PM
Maybe this will make owners more responsible.
2/3/2009 4:05:53 PM
To much like big brother keeping and eye on where your horses are at all times.
2/3/2009 4:05:06 PM
Imposing control on private property
2/3/2009 4:03:14 PM
No- Another way for the govt to make money off the honest hard-working tax payer
2/3/2009 4:01:24 PM
Pet licensing covers shelter costs, where would horse $ go?
2/3/2009 4:00:55 PM
That's ridiculous. You need a license to drive a car not to own a horse.
2/3/2009 4:00:08 PM
government needs to stay out of our barns
2/3/2009 3:59:33 PM
Not mandatory! And no premise ID's or required movement tracking either!
2/3/2009 3:58:46 PM
the government has more important matter to take care of right now.
2/3/2009 3:57:40 PM
I'd only do it if it was free
2/3/2009 3:57:38 PM
I do not wish to tag, license or report. NO NAIS. NO new laws.
2/3/2009 3:56:59 PM
My horse is microchipped. How would a license tag be attached to a horse?
2/3/2009 3:56:10 PM
It would certainly help prevent horses getting lost in the shuffle.
2/3/2009 3:54:40 PM
The expenses and time involved would not be worth any benefits (not even sure how it would benefit)
2/3/2009 3:54:24 PM
it would help to identify stolen and lost horses
2/3/2009 3:54:17 PM
Do NOT need any more Government intervention in private lives.
2/3/2009 3:54:13 PM
Get government out of my business!
2/3/2009 3:52:47 PM
Yes! It's about time. Anything that helps keep horse owners responsible.
2/3/2009 3:51:54 PM
Govt has their fingers in our business too much already
2/3/2009 3:51:45 PM
Too constrictive to manage our horses in the USA
2/3/2009 3:51:17 PM
No more government in our lives.
2/3/2009 3:49:49 PM
Horse ID program. Local gendarme kept records,photos.
2/3/2009 3:48:19 PM
The government gets enough money already and how much will enforcement cost?
2/3/2009 3:47:05 PM
Just one more tax burden....
2/3/2009 3:47:04 PM
My horses are already microchipped. Licenseing is just another way for states to collect revenue.
2/3/2009 3:46:32 PM
I prefer microchip
2/3/2009 3:45:24 PM
Id chiops ar ejust fine and much less expensive.
2/3/2009 3:45:13 PM
It's just another way for big brother to keep an eye on us!!
2/3/2009 3:42:44 PM
more government involment in my life and more$ and headaches.
2/3/2009 3:42:08 PM
Just a way to get more money. Won't help in cases of horse theft.
2/3/2009 3:41:41 PM
We have our horses micro chipped for their safety, licensing would only be redundant
2/3/2009 3:40:19 PM
Los Angeles County requires licenses, but we've seen no benefit, horses are still being pushed out
2/3/2009 3:40:16 PM
Just a good way for the government to tax something else we own!
2/3/2009 3:37:34 PM
I feel horses should have an ID system, but shouldn't have to be licensed.
2/3/2009 3:36:05 PM
I think its just another way for the government to squeeze more money out of us.
2/3/2009 3:35:58 PM
Colorado requires brand inspections, say papers don't prove ownership. Their card w/bay QH m does?
2/3/2009 3:35:47 PM
to make owners accountable for their horses
2/3/2009 3:35:31 PM
Invasion of privacy, big brother taking control, and cost inhibitive.
2/3/2009 3:35:04 PM
Licensing is the first step away from the benefits of being classified as livestock.
2/3/2009 3:32:47 PM
This would be especially hard for breeding and training facilities where horse come and go on a regu
2/3/2009 3:31:56 PM
I don't believe it's an effective method.just an uneeded tax
2/3/2009 3:30:31 PM
already too expensive to keep a horse!
2/3/2009 3:30:27 PM
No. the state of NH tried it last week and it lost due to the horse owners against it.
2/3/2009 3:30:22 PM
we already have passports in UK, not much difference
2/3/2009 3:29:09 PM
There are better ways to provide identification of animals that licensing.
2/3/2009 3:29:02 PM
The money. Just trust us. I vaccinate and will always. And I pay the bills..but not for that..
2/3/2009 3:27:04 PM
Absolutely no funding to maintain the fallout when not accomplished
2/3/2009 3:26:46 PM
It's a new outlet for states to tax us & get more $$!Already taxing food,land &water,now horse? No!
2/3/2009 3:26:16 PM
horses and bureaucracy do not mix!
2/3/2009 3:25:55 PM
this is putting too much burden on the horse owner and also increases the unwanted horse issue
2/3/2009 3:25:14 PM
Its cald Brand Cert.Still use in Western States.Proo that you are byg the right horse
2/3/2009 3:23:29 PM
It would be a pain for people who have 2 or 3 hundred horses.
2/3/2009 3:23:22 PM
Nothing to be gained for the horses only revenue for the Gov't.
2/3/2009 3:23:14 PM
Another tax...horse owning is pricey enough. Brand inspections, however, should be mandatory.
2/3/2009 3:22:47 PM
Cost could be problem. Chip ID to match would be good.
2/3/2009 3:20:51 PM
Good heaven's NO. Yet another layer of partially enforced (and by whom) "government". Taxes up!
2/3/2009 3:20:39 PM
just another way to generate tax revenues
2/3/2009 3:20:33 PM
PUT MORE RESPONSIBILITY ON HORSE OWNERS
2/3/2009 3:19:45 PM
An unmanagable program. Therefore expensive to taxpyrs. Impossible to manage
2/3/2009 3:19:08 PM
Licensing is simply a way for towns to generate money.
2/3/2009 3:18:09 PM
2/3/2009 3:17:58 PM
Not the goverments business
2/3/2009 3:17:05 PM
NO!!! Absolutely not infavor of as a government requirement. Any additional governemnt intrusion.
2/3/2009 3:16:01 PM
some horses already have registration papers and brands
2/3/2009 3:14:47 PM
Its just another way for the State to make more money already have 7 dogs I have to liscense each y
2/3/2009 3:14:31 PM
Los Angeles has horse licensing. Helps keep census for funding projects. We even lic phantom horses.
2/3/2009 3:13:05 PM
Not permanent means of identification and no more paperwork!!!!!
2/3/2009 3:12:58 PM
More expensive & uneeded beaucracy.
2/3/2009 3:12:03 PM
Not government's responsibility...cats & dogs should not be lisenced either.
2/3/2009 3:11:33 PM
Don't have enought information, but it's worth considering for the safety of the horse(s)
2/3/2009 3:10:36 PM
It's unrealistic, many people will refuse just as they refuse to do so for household pets
2/3/2009 3:08:35 PM
Absolutely ridiculous. Horse owners will have to absorb the cost of a program with no clear value.
2/3/2009 3:07:35 PM
Depends on how much it costs!! Wouldn't a chip do just as well?
2/3/2009 3:06:36 PM
will produce a tax and scrutiny by animal rights
2/3/2009 3:05:20 PM
we have to license cats and dogs,maybe then people will be responsible to the animals
2/3/2009 3:04:44 PM
A very small fee would help with how many horses
2/3/2009 3:03:12 PM
FEES ! More things to pay for- NO WAY!
2/3/2009 3:02:57 PM
I.D. should come from papers and bill of sale
2/3/2009 3:02:09 PM
2/3/2009 3:02:01 PM
It depends on the cost and management of the program.
2/3/2009 3:01:56 PM
Another governmental intrusion is not warranted!
2/3/2009 3:01:17 PM
for what purpose? it doesn't work with dogs. just another expense.
2/3/2009 3:01:06 PM
don't want to be regulated by an agency.
2/3/2009 3:00:10 PM
Too much government regulations now!
2/3/2009 2:59:52 PM
My horse is microchipped. Do not need or want any additional fees
2/3/2009 2:59:14 PM
Absolutely not! No reason for it. They don't run wild.
2/3/2009 2:58:18 PM
Horses are expensive enough to properly care for, it will only make problems worse for unwanted hors
2/3/2009 2:57:49 PM
Just what do you mean by horse licensing?
2/3/2009 2:57:37 PM
For ID my horse is reg and microchipped. I don't need someone to tell me to vx.
2/3/2009 2:56:14 PM
just more govt. getting into your business.
2/3/2009 2:55:15 PM
What a paperwork nightmare! There are enough other options (branding, registration papers, etc)
2/3/2009 2:52:55 PM
That is just another way for government to squeeze money out of citizens.
No, and I am not infavor of anything technilogical--for ID freezebrand
2/3/2009 2:52:41 PM
Too many people minding someone else's business.
2/3/2009 2:52:12 PM
one more tax grab...
2/3/2009 2:50:52 PM
Don't need any more government control in my life
2/3/2009 2:50:12 PM
what is the purpose other than to let govenment into my life AGAIN
2/3/2009 2:50:05 PM
Yet another govt. control, and a way into our wallets!
2/3/2009 2:49:53 PM
I only see the government getting more and more involved in something they don't need to be involved
2/3/2009 2:48:01 PM
too much invasive government
2/3/2009 2:46:20 PM
The federal government will only use this as another means to get into my pocketbook!
2/3/2009 2:44:59 PM
We are already slaves to our 4-legged masters and struggle supporting them as is
2/3/2009 2:42:51 PM
It's my business not nay one elses.
2/3/2009 2:39:35 PM
That would be very hard to inforce.
2/3/2009 2:39:34 PM
2/3/2009 2:32:38 PM
it is a stupid idea. Costing more and more for the horse owner for no real reason except money.
2/3/2009 2:30:54 PM
This may help prevent/identify more stolen horses
2/3/2009 2:30:10 PM
We have too much intrusive government now. Please let's not have more.
2/3/2009 2:03:06 PM
to much goverment control
2/3/2009 1:19:08 PM
License breeders-not horses
2/3/2009 1:00:05 PM
they cost so much to own why burden us with more cost?
2/3/2009 12:50:12 PM
we have too much government now
2/3/2009 12:28:47 PM
haveing Halfies I have to reg. the mares and foals with DNA and stud reg.
2/3/2009 12:07:41 PM
I would have to see specifics of the plan, seems just another way the govt. can make $ at our expens
2/3/2009 11:56:55 AM
yes, it makes sense
2/3/2009 11:27:33 AM
License to breed only
2/3/2009 11:27:23 AM
2/3/2009 11:26:23 AM
yes, help w/disease mgmt and overpopulation issues
2/3/2009 11:25:04 AM
Maybe some of these idiots will think twice before buying their "new pet"
2/3/2009 11:20:40 AM
too big brother
2/3/2009 11:19:38 AM
2/3/2009 9:58:19 AM
what is it
2/3/2009 9:53:25 AM
Seems like another scheme to get more money for doing nothing.
2/3/2009 9:43:19 AM
it would be an undue burden on farms with many horses
2/3/2009 9:10:19 AM
License breeders - cut # unwanted horses
