A free market group in Tennessee is suing the Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to argue that the practice of horse massage shouldn't require a veterinary license. The lawsuit comes after Martha Stowe and Laurie Wheeler were prevented from massaging horses without being licensed veterinarians. The plaintiffs argue that, since neither woman claims to be a vet, and both make any potential client fully aware that massaging does not constitute veterinary care, to prevent them from pursuing their business is unconstitutional.
