Exclamation Equine abuse has a legal definition

Just accidentally came across case law while researching equine abuse, which gives a national definition to abuse of the horse.

2004 Washington State Supreme Court held in 118 Wn. App. 730, State v. Zawistowski, that Webster's Third New International Dictionary 1621 (1969) definition of "pain" as "a state of physical or mental lack of well-being or physical or mental uneasiness that ranges from mild discomfort or dull distress to acute often unbearable agony."

Egads, the implications are huge...and of rolkur, etc..........
