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

No!

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

Government control

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

rediculous

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

privacy reasons

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

Too Expensive

2/4/2009 6:56:52 PM

Absolutely NOT!

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

Unnecessary expense

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

Why?

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

no way.........

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

2/4/2009 8:22:33 AM

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

more paperwork/fees

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

Hell No!

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

privacy

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

Absolutely NOT

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

too much government!

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!

2/3/2009 5:02:25 PM

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

too invasive

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

Absolutely NOT

2/3/2009 4:30:10 PM

No No No- As a breeder it would be too costly.....Big Brother. No No No

2/3/2009 4:30:10 PM

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

enough already!

2/3/2009 4:23:26 PM

Just one more regulation that is totally unenforceable and unnecessary.

2/3/2009 4:23:26 PM

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

2/3/2009 4:11:26 PM

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

Too costly

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

more cost

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.

2/3/2009 2:52:55 PM

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

Means taxation

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

yes, definitely

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

NO-NO-NO-NO!!!!!!!!!!

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

2/3/2009 9:08:14 AM
