Yes, I have a lot of ideas. They mainly stem from living in a farm area...as apparently you do not.
First, people (and I mean us) eat frogs, snakes, and if you're in Louisiana, rats....so your argument does not hold up there
Hell, one of the biggest annual snake hunts and feeds is close by me.
This isn't a matter of a question of whether if my children were starving what would I eat. No one has brought up that the horses are to be slaughtered for the sake of starving children. I believe it would be a logical deduction that they are being slaughtered for commerce
And here is where you show your inexperience concerning animals...we would most definitely not want to raise horses versus cows for food based on their grazing behavior out of consideration of other species. No, the way things are is absolutely perfect. You can put approximately 10 head of cattle on an acre of land and not adversely affect the ecology in an intolerable way. You can put approximately 1 horse an acre of land and still adversely effect the ecology. It has to do with their eating habits. A cow will eat the "tops" of natural food available and effect nothing below that. A horse will "hoof" the foliage up and decimate the land and anything dependent on it. So we don't eat (that should be read "raise in mass production") species based on its ecological negative impact...thank Gawd. Sometimes people just need to learn the ends and outs of things.
Because, you would have to increase the number of the species.
You would have to feed more in order to prevent the negative land impact
And no, all hooves do not damage the land. This is a desparate anti-meat sentiment or something
Yes, this slaughter of horses is for commerce. That is my opposition...in entirety. Horses are for loving and pleasure and appreciation.
There are others God has given for consumption. And we should be grateful each time we partake.

be careful which one you pick.
Horses seem to be sacred animals to many people.
