It's not an opinion - it's a fact. Horses are livestock. Period.
If you want them taxed and treated as pets - feel free to talk to your state representative - and be prepared to pay more out of your pocket and have more restrictions and requirements. In our state we lobbied hard to have the goverment see them as livestock.
I very much love my horses - and my cats. In the end, they are animals and my husband comes first.
