Q: Do you consider your horse livestock or a pet?

I was recently in a conversation with someone and the topic came about how to classify horses. I am sure the dictionary says they are "livestock", but I definitely would not consider something I have formed such a great bond with as livestock. What do you think?

Technically livestock, but realistically, in most cases pets. In veterinary medicine, they are considered to be COMPANION ANIMALS.

I don't consider horses to be livestock when they are not going to be eaten.
