Re: Comments of Tabitha Rachelle Darling

I have a service animal. I have two documented disabilities. I am blind. I have epilepsy. I also have a mobility impairment which is arthritis.

I deeply protest/question this new supposed change in law to define an exact service animal. I have been lead to believe that equines, ALL equines will be removed from the preceeding law. In effect dismissing them as suitable service animals. The irrefutable fact is that they DO service perfectly fine. Mine being no exception as for others. Buses, taxis, service buses and even my own human support do NOT get me where and when I need/want to go at my choosing. My service pony accomodates my life in a pronounced manner. She fullfills my life more than they all do combined.
