Panel: Outside vet needed for Beaufort horses

Posted: Updated:

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - A tourism commission in Beaufort is recommending an independent veterinarian check on carriage horses that work in the city.

The Beaufort Gazette reports ( ) the Tourism Advisory Commission wants annual checkups of the horses by an outside veterinarian.

The city's two carriage companies currently have their own vets examine the horses twice a year. The panel recommends that continue.

The outside check-ups would have to be paid for by the carriage companies. The change would have to be approved by Beaufort City Council.

The recommendation comes after a horse owned by one of the carriage companies fell twice in recent months.
