The Equestrian Riding School of Brasilia in Brazil is facing some backlash for a program they've been offering to children with autism where they get to paint on Thor. No, not the Avenger, Thor the horse. The children use non-toxic paint and once they're done, it's easily washed off.

The goal of the program is to get the children comfortable around animals. Still, some people are outraged, claiming that this program might harm the horse. However, government agencies have inspected the school twice and have found no such evidence that the program would be considered animal abuse.
