Horse bill headed to governor
Horses are *not* an innately vicious species. That being said common sense needs to be used when humans and horses interact. Insurance companies should not list horses among animals that are dangerous. They are our companion that must be respected. Someone needs to point that out in the comments section of the article ~ HfH

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy proposed the bill, which has now been passed unanimously in both the House and Senate. He released a statement Tuesday morning saying he plans to sign it.
The legislation was prompted by the Supreme Court’s decision to hear a lawsuit stemming from the 2006 incident, during which a horse named Scuppy bit a toddler at a farm in Milford. In March, the court ruled in favor of the young boy who was bitten, and decided that horse owners have a responsibility to prevent injuries that are foreseeable. The case was sent back to a lower court for more consideration.
