I have made some changes and advanced


to status proposed.

2 Problems I have with it ..

Type of dip

Rather than use livestock_dip 
it might be best to use dip 
This stays away from the animal, concentrating on the 'dip' and 
identifies the process rather than the equipment.

Conflicting access tags

access <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:access>=private 
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:access%3Dprivate> with horse 
says, for OSM, it is private access but public for horses ... for us 
humans it is private for the use of horses.

A way around that is to not use horse=yes but something like 

I prefer animal, as that can be used for pets, zoos etc, livestock is 

Livestock is used some 3,000 times .. no documentation that I could see, 
but it looks consistant.

Animal is used some 10,000 time .. poorly documented and used not only 
to specify the animal but facilities like school, wellness, swimming .. 
a very confused key!

I think the key animal needs a good clean!
