(KGTV) - Did the Transportation Department really declare that airlines must allow miniature horses to fly as service animals?

Yes.

The new guidelines add miniature horses to the list of service animals that can fly in any cabin.

The horses stand 2 to 3 feet tall and weigh about 100 pounds.

The Department does note that airlines are still allowed to reject animals if they're deemed too large, dirty, or dangerous.
