The Washington County Board of Education could vote as early as Tuesday on the first reading of a new policy governing service animals for individuals with disabilities in public schools that would now include miniature horses, board officials said. Board President Justin Hartings said the inclusion of miniature horses was due to federal law. The board policy committee didn't sit down with a list of farm animals and choose miniature horses, said Hartings, one of three board members on the panel.
