FAA Clears Miniature Horses for Commercial Flights

We've seen people attempt to bring all kinds of strange animals on planes, claiming they are emotional support animals.

Well, planes are about to get even more zoo-like! The FAA recently cleared miniature horses for commercial flights. That's right, you could be seated next to a horse on your next flight.

The first miniature horse to fly is named Flirty, and she recently embarked on her debut trip. Abrea Hensley, 33, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, which she says is due to childhood trauma. Because she is allergic to dogs, her service animal is Flirty, the miniature horse. Together, they boarded a plane in Nebraska. It's believed that Flirty's voyage is the first time in U.S. aviation history that a miniature horse flew a commercial airplane.
