I may have misunderstood the question. Yes I am for strict ANIMAL abuse laws and punishment. But, I am not for singling out horses or horse abusers for "special" punishment. An animal is an animal. There is no more devoted companion than a loving dog. Most of us humans could learn something from dogs or other mere "pets" about selfless love, carring, compasion, and devout service.

I am retired law enforcement and every K-9 I have known is another police officer, nothing less. My wife is disabled and her service dog is a member of our family;, sleeps in the bed with us. Yes, the people who abuse these majestic, beautiful animals should be punished and punished severly. But, lets not single out one animal over another or one abuser over another. Pass adequate laws, enforce the laws, and demand adequate punishment for ALL abusers, not just one species because of media hype or what is politically correct at this moment.
