Don't people keep fish as pets.

"Domesticated". Meaning trained. All horses aren't Plenty of wild ones. I on't see them as pets anymore than rabbits. Some are domesticated some are wild. All are tasty.

I drool over the goldfish every time I feed them. Too much work to scale them and clean them though.

I don't see it as any big deal. No different than eating cow IMO. Pretty much all choices are nothing but cultural choices anyway. It's just not something that is common enough now for people to accept easily. But if you worked it in gradually I'm sure they'd get used to it. I wonder what kinds of cuts you get off a horse. Is it the same as cow??

You should learn to fillet your fish rather than scale them. It's much easier and less of a mess. I learned that method for bass which a lot of people scale first. But you can skip that and just fillet the meat and toss the rest without all the trouble.

I wouldn't eat horse meat.
Just in case anyone was wondering.

Horse brisket? Smoked slow over hardwood.

Draft horse - good with beer. Quarter horse - great for a 1/4 pound burger.

I would imagine the same general cut names are there, much like beef and pork.

The commercials will be amusing.

I'd try anything in kebab form, hold the onions and organ meats.
Maybe a side of poutine.

I filet fish sometimes, but it might be a little hard to filet that two inch long goldfish.

I used to have one of those crank skinners for skinning bass and perch. It worked great. It is probably somewhere in our junk yet, I hate having a big house with a front storage attic, two garages with walk in storage attics, and also a fifty by twenty two food workshop with storage. It could take me a year to find that. But then again, the goldfish will be happy if I never find it.

I don't think the term bacon (ala turkey) can be used with anything but pork meat. Might make an exception for horse bacon.

I've never heard of a crank skinner before. It sounds interesting.

What does it leave you with???

I've never used one but I won't let that stop me from commenting. This is ATS.

I don’t see why people advocate for saving horses from meat. It’s just meat that’s on an animal. People are brainwashed into thinking things are inedible in America like bugs and rodents.

I guess it really will show who will go first when a crisis comes around and you have to eat what you can to survive.

If you think "you'll" be eating this, you can sleep easy, as you won't.

That's assuming they label the food correctly. Remember the 2013 horsemeat scandal throughout Europe?

Also, I think you and the OP are actually in agreement. I think he/she is saying that it's better to slaughter them here than to send them across the borders where they'll be killed in crueler ways.

Nothing wrong with a bit of caballo.

For a carnivore I mean.

You never saw one of these? www.ebay.com...:g:9TwAAOSwzSRZvuo7

Of course, they only make electric ones now.
Nobody can even turn a crank anymore.
