This is equally as repugnant as eating a dog or cat. imo. No, no, and no.
Owners can get up to $700 for selling an animal to a slaughterhouse across the border. Without that option, disposing of a carcass by landfill can cost several hundred dollars. Cremation costs up to $1,000.

don't know if this was said yet, I didn't read threw. Make horse meat legal and sell it real cheap so that anyone can afford it.
I wouldn't think there would be a lot of folks that want to eat it,but there are folks that could use the meat.

Family pet horses are sometimes bought by beef slaughterhouses. Also,sometimes they don't know how to properly euthanize the horses leaving them with an agonizing death. As up mentioned the horses being sold out of the US face that there as well.

Yes, maybe a gradual shift..I love meat but lately been have some moral conflict/dilemma with how our food is treated.
A few scandals lately have really bothered me.(livestock being abused..chickens, dairy cows..etc)
