The word "livestock" is a bad word for the horses themselves. I think they should put it as "luxury pets" or "recreational" animals. The word livestock for me, are cattle or any animal that is to be used for human consumption. Indeed times have changed for all livestock and recreational animals. You just don't see too many horses doing work anymore than they did back in the early centuries of 1800-1900's which horses were used for transportation.
