One step closer

Remember recently when I posted about a fake Craigslist ad that was used to raise public awareness of a severely neglected, starving mare? In that post I mentioned that because horses are viewed as livestock, abuse of them tends to be treated differently than if it were someone's cat or dog.

Well, recently Arkansas included horses in a piece of very important new legislation, making animal cruelty a felony. I found this out from a new blog I'm following, Tacky Tack of the Day, which usually talks about horse tack but went a little off topic for this post.

I hope this new law in Arkansas will encourage other states to follow suit!
